This general-purpose waterproof jacket is an excellent price; superb fabric performance; two deep hip pockets and two chest pockets; venting pit zips; hood has good adjustment and reasonable movement.  But 878g (men’s size L) is a little bit heavier than some; hood is a bit of a mess with flappy, wraparound chinguards; the chest pockets are very unusual as the opening is in the centre of the pocket rather than the sides; the lower pocket access is easily obscured by rucksack belts.

Verdict: Excellent price and fabric let down by poor pockets and short style.
