Mammut Convey 2009

The Mammut Convey weighs 446g (men’s L); Paclite fabric is extremely waterproof and extremely breathable; hood rolls to collar; two map-sized hip pockets; good price for features; front zip has external stormflap. But other fabrics control condensation better than Paclite; hood peak is not stiffened; pocket access easily obscured by rucksack belts.

Verdict: The Mammut Convey  is a good price for a lightweight walking jacket, but poor pocket access, condensation control and relatively high weight are drawbacks.
