Rab Mountain Dru (2012)

The Dru feels heavier when worn than it actually is, as the fabric is a little stiff in comparison with others. But it’s as protective as any and it’s very breathable too. It has good-sized, well-placed handwarmer pockets and a huge Napoleon pocket that will swallow a map. The hood is excellent, with 3-way adjustment and a wired peak, and the collar is soft and protective. It has a good storm flap and is a good length at the hem. The sleeves feel a little restricted by the stiff fabric, but the cuffs are easily adjustable.
