+ There are abrasion-resistant panels in high-wear areas but sadly not on the women’s Myriad, which is also missing the rollaway hood of the men’s Mountain Dru. However, the Myriad’s new Neoshell fabric is soft and flexible, and there’s microfleece inside both versions of the jacket around the chin and zip area.
– We really missed not having a two-way zipper and pit zips for when things hot up.
VERDICT: Grumbles aside, these are great all-round jackets: we love their clean lines and lightweight nature.
