+ This jacket has many of the features you’d expect from a higher priced waterproof (including a two way zip). It’s comfortable and boasts a stowaway hood, two good-sized hand pockets, and storm flaps on all external zips for extra protection against the elements.
- The storm peak on the hood is not wired and tends to flap around in the wind, even with the cord pulled tight. The jacket is quite bulky when packed away. The zipped internal pocket is big enough for a wallet, but not a map. The women’s jacket is also cut quite short.
VERDICT: A sound jacket that provides all the basic features at a great price. It won’t blow you away, but then it won’t blow your budget either.
