Odlo Packaway Pro (2012)

The Packaway Pro has some really great features. It’s long enough to cover the hips, and the fabric is reassuringly tough as well as waterproof, breathable and very easy to move around in. It’s packed full of features, including a waterproof front zip with a fleece chin guard at the top; rubber-backed Velcro cuff adjusters that are easy to grab with gloves on; and four mesh-lined hand pockets with waterproof zips. The hood is very deep, with four baffle adjusters to cinch it down tightly in bad weather, although the peak could do with extra reinforcement. The jacket’s lovely soft cuffs are contoured to protect your hands from the rain and cold.
