Lowe Alpine Sierra Lite

The Sierra Lite does an excellent job of keeping wind and mild rain off, while providing some insulation and great breathability. Unfortunately the jacket is let down by a non-adjustable, very tight cuff which cuts down its versatility, especially when you’re climbing a hill and feel that rolling sleeves up would be enough to cool you down. It’s a shame as it’s certainly very light, and packs down well. It’s also a good-looking jacket meaning it will work well for general casual wear, too.
