A mid-to-heavyweight jacket that offers better than average levels of weatherproofing with fully taped seams and a hard-wearing finish with good stretch levels. The Credo’s fleece lining holds in the warmth well and the main zip is well protected with baffles, both inside and outside. Exposed zips on the hip and chest pockets don’t seem to let water in while the collar and hems have cinches for a better seal and the cuffs are Velcro-tabbed. The lack of venting makes it more suitable for colder weather.
Fabric: Bonded soft shell, nylon face, brushed fleece interior
Women’s version: Yes (Solitude)
