Nike ACG Adventure Wind 2008

This soft shell jacket weighs just 512g; Gore Windstopper fabric is very wind- and water-resistant; 4-way stretch; hard-wearing feel to fabric; no-sew construction; small chest pocket is useful. But no added insulation; hip pocket access easily obscured by rucksack belts.Verdict
Superb fabric and weight that is ideal for climbing, scrambling and fast action, but pocket access could be better for use with rucksacks or harnesses.
