A really comfortable jacket, and it boasts a great hood too; but at 490g it’s also heavy and not very packable. It’s an excellent all-rounder – warm enough and weatherproof enough for winter wear, yet just about light and packable enough to leave in a pack in better conditions. It is a bit warm for full-on summer weather, though, even with the lengthy pit-zips wide open. Best-suited to those who want only one jacket for all occasions.
Women’s version: Unisex
