For those for us without bionic vision, here's what it says:
This is relatively long with a dropped back, so stays put under a rucksack. Although the cut is quite lean, it allows room to move, especially at the Raglan shoulders.
A small well sahped hood tucks into the collar; this feels like a warm wee pillow around your neck when the jacket is fully zipped up and gets sweaty because of the multiple fabric layers but with the neck unzipped it's fine. The hood is adjustable, with secured, slimeline shockcord and toggles.
Adjustable shockcord pulls the hem close, with narrow elastic at the cuffs. A roomy chest pocket, with a micro zip, is well placed and sized fro a map. I really liked this. The full length zip is backed with anti-snap tape which doubles as a chin guard. A superb windshell, combining fabric performance, cut, features and price.
Likes: Hood, pockets, cut
