A fairly technical jacket that performs well without looking like high-end mountaineering kit. The shorter cut allows for a good range of movement in comfort. Technically the jacket performs well, with the Gore-Tex keeping the rain out. The pockets are mesh-lined, so in theory could double up as vents, but the hip pockets are too small for this purpose. They are also a bit low to be accessed around a pack hip belt. The face fabric has a nice feel and is quiet too.
Fabric: Gore-Tex Performance Shell
Women’s version: Eos
