Vaude Stretch Infinity 2009

The Vaude Stretch Infinity general-purpose jacket weighs 552g (men’s L); stretch eVent fabric is extremely waterproof and breathable; pit zips; chest pockets easily accessed with rucksack on; front zip gets external stormflap; fine hood movement. But chest pockets are mesh-lined so not as waterproof as sealed pockets; hood peak is large and not stiffened.

 

Verdict: The Vaude Stretch Infinity is a good general-purpose jacket, but others have advantages at this price.
