This waterproof jacket from Wynnster uses Aquastop fabric, which is very comfortable and it’s slightly longer than most without being too long. It has a deep hood with plenty of adjustment and the Velcro/elastic cuffs are perfect. This will suit heavier builds. The Cleveland keeps a fair bit of bad weather out before starting to ‘wet out’. The hood, which has a wired peak, is excellent, keeping you warm and cosy. It’s quite warm though, due mainly to the thick mesh lining.
Verdict: A no-nonsense waterproof at a very reasonable price. It’s not as breathable as some more expensive offerings, but it packs down well and also looks good enough to wear casually.
