Walk rating

Price: £180

Weight: 680g


+ A nice-looking and comfortable jacket, with a fleece collar, decent-sized pockets and a stowaway, adjustable hood. The cut is a little longer at the rear so it easily covers your behind! The shaped cuffs work well, there’s a drawcord adjustable collar and you can zip in a compatible fleece.

– It’s on the bulky side and so gets a little warm – with no pit zips on the Odyssey to release the heat.

VERDICT: A nice jacket, but missing some of the features of the others on test. Overall, though, it quietly delivers a very good performance.
