+ Very light yet it doesn’t scrimp on features, having a rollaway hood, microfleece to protect your chin, a fully adjustable wired hood, and large pockets that are positioned so they don’t get in the way of rucksack straps.

– We found the sizings came up small. There are no inner pockets, two-way zip or pit zips (although the mesh-lined pockets help with ventilation). A slightly longer-length jacket would offer better protection against the elements.

VERDICT: Super-lightweight and versatile, this jacket uses Pertex Shield – a very thin, laminated fabric with a print finish on the inside.
