Haglöfs Chaos Q 2008

The Haglöfs Chaos Q  general-purpose jacket weighs just 676g (men’s L); Gore-Tex Performance Shell extremely waterproof and very breathable; mesh lining; scooped tail; two large chest pockets; double stormflap; zip-off hood with fair fit, movement. But pocket access easily obscured with rucksack belts; other jackets have better hoods and more breathable fabric.Verdict: The Haglöfs Chaos Q is a good, mid-priced jacket but pocket access is not ideal when wearing a rucksack.
