Salomon Speed 2008

The Salomon Speed  multi-activity jacket weighs just 254g (women’s M); very breathable, very waterproof ClimaPro fabric; one chest pocket; mesh arm pits and back of shoulder; comfy collar lining. But no hood, making this a dedicated fast-pace jacket; no map-sized pocket; front zip lacks external stormflap; some adventure races state a hood is compulsory kit.Verdict
The Salomon Speed  is a adventure racing or action jacket where the lack of hood and pockets won’t be a drawback.
