Timberland Glendale 2009

The Timberland Glendale general-purpose jacket uses waterproof and breathable fabric; large chest pockets accessible while wearing rucksack belts; hood fit and movement are superb. But 782g (size L) is heavy; higher-performance waterproof and breathable fabrics are available at a higher price; hood does not roll to collar; front zip has no external stormflaps; very short body.

Verdict: The Timberland Glendale is a reasonable low-priced general-purpose waterproof but it’s very short and heavy.
