A modern classic, that like the Bergans Uranostind, it’s part of a cold weather layering system rather than a full-stop beefy belay jacket. It’s very light and warm, thanks to 60 g/m2 Primaloft Gold Eco insulation, which insulates even when damp. It works as a cosy layer for cool evenings, or a workhorse piece in winter that goes on at the beginning of the day. It’s also very tough – I’ve got an older version that has been put through its paces over several years, and it was great to compare with the latest incarnation – and see how well my old friend has stood up to the abuse. Packs in to its chest pocket. Weight 280g.
