Weight: 390g

+ This jacket is lightweight, packable – it comes with its own stuff sack – and has a wired, stowaway hood that is both effective and practical. It has four good-sized zipped pockets and reflective strips for added visibility. The cut is good with a generous length in the body.


- It doesn’t have a two way zip, there’s no loop to hang it from and there is no internal secure pocket. Plus it is a little pricey.


VERDICT: There is a lot to love about this jacket; it’s very light yet boasts a good range of features. It is impressively breathable (aided by zip vents) and waterproof, making it a great all-rounder.
