This sturdy two-layer hill-walkers jacket is built from reliable Gore-Tex, with a drop liner of mesh and taffeta that helps with moisture management on humid days. This does add to the weight, (487g) but also adds to comfort and reliability. I really like the way that this jacket is cut, despite the liner it avoids being bulky yet has good of freedom of movement and arm length. The hood is fully adjustable, and has a stiffened brim. The handwarmer pockets and front fastening are finished with water-resistant zips, and the inside pocket is enormous.
VERDICT: A solid performer
BEST FOR: Year round walking in the British hills.
