Easy enough to move around in for such a well-insulated jacket. The fleece-lined collar was lovely and snug, but it was let down by tight cuffs that wouldn’t pull up to spill heat. Has a mix of windproof/waterproof fabric in the body and more breathable, less weatherproof fabric under the arms. As such it works well, but noticeably less breathable than some.

Verdict: A good-looking, functional jacket best-suited to use as an outer layer in colder/nastier weather.
