Craghoppers Madigan

A good length in the arms and body. The zip-off hood is rather small, though, and didn’t protect the sides of the face too well. A feminine looking jacket that will keep you dry, although the AquaDry fabric isn’t the most breathable. The insulated “hot pockets” were certainly very warm and large map pocket was a bonus.
