Adidas Terrex Feather 2009

The Adidas Terrex Feather weighs 384g (men’s M); Gore-Tex Pro Shell; extremely high waterproofness and breathability; mesh chest pockets can be accessed while wearing a rucksack; fixed hood can be rolled down and secured to collar; excellent movement in sleeves. But very high price tag for features; sealed pockets and a stormflap over main zip would increase waterproofness.

Verdict: The Adidas Terrex Feather’s high price stalls purchase of otherwise good lightweight jacket.
