A huge jacket, long at the hem and baggy in the body. Good adjustment at the cuffs and hood, though, and a pleasant rustle-free fabric. Soft fleece chin guard. Kept the weather out, but heavy and bulky in a pack and rather hot on milder days. The hood worked well, but the horizontal opening hip pockets were difficult to reach with a rucksack on.

Verdict: A bomb-proof jacket with conservative styling, but heavy and bulky. It’s not that breathable, either, and quite expensive for what it is.
