+ Impressively warm, even in sub-zero temperatures, and we can’t fault its weather resistance – it really is watertight. There’s an adjustable hood and inside and outside pockets, as well as a very useful two-way zip.
– This is one bulky jacket. The cut seemed short on the arms and the hood doesn’t pack away, so it flaps around in the wind. The zip kept getting caught on the material behind.
VERDICT: The uneven cut and awkward zip made this disappointing. It performed well in seriously cold conditions but may be too warm for regular winter temperatures.
