A nice-fitting jacket made from Regatta’s waterproof Isolite 5000 fabric. It’s a heavy jacket, but it packs down easily and some will prefer the extra protection offered by the mesh lining. Less breathable than many, but the mesh-lined pockets and underarm zips offer a welcome flow of air and Velcro adjustable cuffs pull up easily to the elbows. Pockets are small and placed too low for access when wearing a pack. But on the plus side, it has a decent-sized, adjustable hood.
Men’s version: Yes
