+ This gilet is soft and lightweight but reassuringly warm. The synthetic insulation works well even when wet and dries quickly. The cut is feminine, with a generous drop hem at the back. There are useful deep pockets too, one of which doubles as a stuff sack.
- It is slightly bulkier than other gilets here, with thicker baffles.
VERDICT: So soft and cosy that it feels like a down garment. The attention to detail and quality is superb and the women’s cut is flattering.
