Mountain Equipment G2

This soft shell weighs 664g; Gore-Tex Soft Shell fabric; Paclite hood rolls into collar; external taped seams on shoulders; pit zips for venting; waist pockets easily take an OS map; Velcro adjustable cuffs; brushed polyester lining adds warmth. But access to pockets could be better if they were higher on the chest; expensive.

Verdict: Buy it if you can tolerate the pocket location, as otherwise this is a great all-round soft shell.
