Weight 420g (size medium, my scales).
Simple but effective, this is a lightweight, membrane-free soft shell that breathes well and sheds wind, and can also be layered up under a shell. Made from a nylon/elastane mix for durability and stretch, it has a soft, brushed interior and a tough woven face. It is beautifully tailored, with long sleeves and sculpted cuffs, and a hood that will stretch over a helmet, or fit underneath without fuss. I like the tall collar that is easy to snuggle in to when the hood is up. Other features include an unusually roomy bicep pocket, and mesh handwarmer pockets. It’s a good price for a chic, understated jacket that is suitably technical for active use in cool, dry weather.
