GoLite Gauntlet 2008

The GoLite Gauntlet jacket has a Gore-Tex Performance Shell with a mesh lining; double stormflaps on all zips; longer than most; good movement in the sleeves; four chest pockets; rollaway hood is a removable with a wired peak. But 896g (men’s L); hood does not fit quite as well as others.

Verdict: The GoLite Gauntlet is a superb general walkers’ jacket if you like a longer design, want lots of pockets and can tolerate the weight.
