Craghoppers Icefield 2011

The Craghoppers Icefield weighs 522g (size L); 600 fill power down; two zipped hip pockets; huge internal pocket that jacket can be stashed into; good wide anti-snag baffle on the main zip; reflective collar trim. But no hood; no cuff adjustment; no cosy soft brushed lining to the collar; not quite warm enough for sitting around on winter mountains.

The Craghoppers Icefield is okay for milder winter conditions but has no hood so more of a valley garment than a mountain garment.
