Vaude Kada 2008

This soft shell jacket  has huge chest pockets that can be accessed while wearing a rucksack; pocket across the back for biking; zipped wrist cuffs; front is 100% windproof, back is 80%. But 614g is heavy for what you get; no insulation; chest pockets extend to hem so items get trapped behind belts; weird mix of features.
An interesting garment that would be useful when biking or for scrambles and climbing, but doesn’t quite excel at anything
