Mountain Hardwear Escape

This general-purpose waterproof jacket weighs 732g (size L); Gore-Tex Performance Shell;  mesh lining to add extra comfort; pit zips help control condensation; base pockets angled for easy access; hood rolls down to collar; fit and movement of the hood is very good too. But quite short, which means access to base pockets is easily obscured with rucksack belts; chest pocket is not quite large enough for an OS map; for this price I would have expected Pro Shell fabric.

Verdict: A high-priced average jacket that does not quite deliver on its promise.
