This general-purpose waterproof jacket weighs 742g (size 12); mesh lining adds comfort; longer than average length allows good access to base pockets when wearing a rucksack; removable rollaway hood with wired peak; main zip gets double stormflap. But Aquastop fabric is not as waterproof or as breathable as higher-priced materials; there are lighter jackets of course.

Verdict: A jacket that is unbeatable at the price, and ideal for any walker on a tight budget.
