A top-notch value-for-money soft shell that features a warm, fleecy backed fabric that offers a fair bit of insulation and does a good job of keeping drizzle at bay. It’s got plenty of stretch in it, which makes it very comfortable and easy to move in and it’s also got Velcro adjustment at the cuffs and a drawcord at the hem. The two hardwarmer pockets are a good size and a map will tuck down behind the lining on the inside – useful when wearing it as a shell. The collar is high and snug, so comfy and warm. Looks good too.
Women’s version: Yes, Nuka
