This lightweight waterproof weighs is made from a four-way stretch fabric called ProStretch, which is waterproof and breathable with taped seams. This fabric allows a closer fit without restricting body movement, which is ideal for fast, lightweight hill action. The jacket has just two outer pockets and these are large enough for maps and they provide ventilation thanks to their mesh lining. You also get pit zips for added ventilation control. There is an additional internal mesh pocket as well. Reflective piping is fitted to the front and lower hem too for staying visible at night. The hood is a fixed design and is close fitting, with as peak and good adjustment. But At 490g (size S) this only just creeps into the lightweight category. The main drawbacks though are that the hood movement is not quite as good as the best and the soft peak tends to bunch up when face drawcords are adjusted, although this will of course perhaps depend on your head size and shape. As the pockets are mesh they are not as watertight as sealed pockets.
