+ A generously sized, longer-length jacket that won’t let you down: it’s very robust and is designed to take a compatible zip-in fleece.
– There is no two-way zipper, the folded hood is bulky and it’s all a touch on the heavy side.
VERDICT: We found this jacket bulky, and the hood, when folded away into the collar, pressed uncomfortably into your neck. It also weighed us down out in the hills, but it did provide excellent protection against the sheets of rain.
