The Android is a midweight top with a satisfying feel to the fabric but not too much stretch. It’s quite thick, erring towards the jacket end of the spectrum, with the extra levels of windproofing and waterproofing that come with it. There is no venting through pit-zips or mesh pockets, so it is definitely better suited to colder days. The inner cuff sleeves are a nice touch, but they are not adjustable so can’t be tightened right up. A micro fleece lining around the collar provides a soft feel against the chin.
