I’m not the best skier in the world and hence, I tend to fall over and get wet. The great thing about this insulated jacket from Mountain Equipment is that it’s filled with Primaloft® One, which doesn’t lose heat even when it gets wet. Couple that with the fact that Primaloft® packs down really well if you get too warm.

A perfect jacket to deal with the British weather
Reviewed By David, 04 Feb 2014

This is an excellent jacket capable of handling the best of the worst the UK weather can throw at you. I have owned mine for over two years and recently the hood adjuster came loose from the concealed toggle. I returned the jacket to the Betws Y Coed store who sent it back to ME for repair. ME did not repair the problem, but replaced the jacket for a new one. This is an outstanding after service sale from a top brand, which only strengthens my faith in their equipment and guarantees.

 

 

 
Top Service...helped me choose ideal Jacket
Reviewed By Christopher, 22 Nov 2013

Received excellent customer service with my wife last week at Cirencester Water Park outlet seeking a shell jacket to replace my 15 year old red North Face shell! The friendly Cotswold Outdoor staff walked me around and explained the pro’s and con’s of the main options for my priorities: Warmth, Light weight, Stylish and with a hood that really fits!

Initially I looked at fully waterproof shells but found many fitted too high in the waste and were difficult to get the various face flaps and hoods to fit…with pull adjusters hard to locate even looking in the full length mirror!

Eventually I chose from the insulated jacket section a light ocean blue Fitzroy Jacket made by Mountain Equipment. This exactly matched my needs for functional light weight with warm insulation…and the friendly assistant advised it will also keep out wind, and most rain and snow for up to half an hour. The medium size also allows room for a base (purchased) and second fleece layer, whilst fitting snugly and looking good.

This jacket fits perfectly, is easy to zip up (I usually have problems!) and the wired hood is simple to adjust tight via the 3-way ties without covering my glasses. In short, just perfect for cold days watching football! Additionally, the Fitzroy is an ideal all-weather solution which can be rolled up to fit in a rucksack or flight bag when weight is a serious issue. Thanks Cotswold Outddoor!

 

 

 
Welcome addition with winter approaching
Reviewed By Paul, 03 Nov 2013

A very welcome and early Christmas present. A great all rounder that provides good protection against most Lake District weather conditions. Nice, light and can be compacted for easy carrying with other gear when out and about.

 

 

 
Where have you been all my life?
Reviewed By Steve, 28 Oct 2013

I've only had this jacket since April, but now wouldn't be with out it. It does everything. I've worn it over my waterproof on a very windy Green Gable, as a insulating layer on some brilliant wild camps, just for warmth when moving slowly and teaching navigation and I've even slept in it when the temperature dropped lower than expected and I only had a light summer bag. It fits well and the primaloft is more than warm enough. A great jacket!

 

 

 
Flexible light and not too hot
Reviewed By G, 15 Mar 2013

This really is the perfect jacket for Scottish winter. You don't have to worry if it gets wet, as the primaloft will still perform.It's not too bulky,won't split the waterproof seals of your Gore-tex when you put it on underneath your waterproof or make you look like Mr Creosote. Although not as light as down, it's still pretty light, and it packs down fairly small as well.Unlike the Citadel jacket,the steroid version of the Fitzroy,it keeps a balance between warmth and incineration.In the bitterly cold,clear weather we had before Christmas (minus 10) it was perfect on the hill as an outer layer...windproof, warm, but not creating too big a sweat.Velcro wrist straps help regulate your temperature, and the pockets are fleece lined.2 little criticisms; firstly, you can roll up the hood and keep it in place with a clever velcro patch. However, it looks ridiculous like this; you end up with a collar that makes Elvis' Las Vegas jumpsuit look tasteful. More Harry Hill than Hill walker.The other thing is that the front brim of the hood has a wire inset, which may keep the rain of your face but looks a bit corrugated, like some tired old asbestos roofing.Despite that, I think it's one of the best pieces of kit I've bought, and you can wear it around town.... or to Harry Hill Conventions.

 

 

 
High performance in a portable package
Reviewed By Shea, 17 Oct 2012

I love the way this jacket packs up and just leave it in the car or a rucksack should I need it. Paramo is outstanding in the wet. Buy this together with the Rab Generator pull-on and you are covered.

 

 

 
Bombproof winter favourite!!
Reviewed By Murray, 23 Sep 2012

This is a wonderfully versatile piece of primaloft insulation from those clever people at Mountain Equipment. I'm on my third and carry one of these with me 4 seasons a year - for resisting hard driving snow on the scottish munros in mid-winter to providing a cosy warm jacket for bothy and campsite evenings 3 seasons a year. Also, it's great to chuck it on to prevent heat loss on the summit or during longer stops all year round (in Scotland anyway!). It has nice deep microfleece lined hand warmer pockets, drawstring tightening and velcro type wrist adjustment to keep the draughts out and a 3-way adjustable hood with stiffened visor for those wilder days on the hill. Cosy 100g primaloft around the core body area and 60g in the arms and hood keeps the cold at bay with ease. If it was fully waterproof I'd wear it all the time!! Sadly it's not quite, but it's windproof, will resist all but prolonged heavy rain and retains its warmth in the wet far better than the equivalent down jacket....so definitely one for Scotland rather than Switzerland!!
It comes with its own stuffsack and packs down to the about the size of a 1L sigg bottle...so it can fit comfortably in the bottom of your rucksack without you noticing! Very highly recommended....the Fitzroy has the potential to become your very favourite bit of gear!

 

 

 
My favourite jacket
Reviewed By Stuart, 21 Sep 2012

Supurb kit and goes anywhere. Water resistant enough to shed snow and keep showers off. Ideal for winter use in UK. Layer with a base and shell for a perfect combination. Small pack size and light. Used on the peak of Toubkal in the spring.

 

 

 
perfect insulator
Reviewed By , 23 Jun 2011

Since buying the fitzroy jacket(2 months ago) our weather here in Scotland has thrown down some testing climate's on a daily basis. Whether its been snow, rain, frost or wind, this jacket has proved its worth already and im sure will continue to do so. The jacket itself is so lightweight and durable, but has outstanding warmth. On some days during the heavy snow and low temps a simple baselayer of a long sleeve t-shirt was all that was worn underneath. The jacket provided excellent warmth and heat distribution throughout.The pockets have a fleece lining providing great warmth to your hands if gloveless, aslo large pocket on chest for map storage etc...The hood is fully adjustable weather a helmet is worn, or just to keep wind/rain off. I have 2 other brands of primaloft insulated jackets and they're both good but the fitzroy is off better quality by far. The colour scheme for the jackets also are highly visible,which is no bad thing and i would imagine is a safety measure from mountain equipment.The jacket itself has good water resistance but for heavier downpours,(glencoe/nevis rain), putting a gore-tex or event jacket on top still gives you freedom to move and does not bulk you over. I have a size large fitzroy, and a size larg

 

 

 
Awesome insulating shell
Reviewed By Chris, 19 May 2011

I've had this jacket for nearly 3 years, I actually look forward to sub zero temperatures so I can wear it constantly! It's a really light weight shell, water resistance is also fantastic. As it is primaloft it also works when wet and it really does!! The handwarmer pockets r also fantastic... Only slight problemo is the hood which is slightly tricky to adjust and doesn't always stay where it is told but does just about work with a helmet!! Also comes with handy stuff sack!!

 

 

 
great insulator
Reviewed By rob, 22 Mar 2011

i bought the fitzroy jacket at the begining of october and what a great purchase it has been. i live in scotland and i am a regular walker in glen coe, north west scotland. All kinds of weather conditions and every time the jacket keeps out the elements. the primaloft technology that mountain equipment have installed in this jacket is by far one of the best in the market. the jacket is so lightweight,two hand warmer pockets, large pocket on chest, adjustable cuff strap on sleeves, hood can be adjusted also, all great for keeping the wind out, can easily be sheltered with a gore-tex jacket over it in severe rain downpours. jacket very durable and highly visible in snow conditions also which is good for safety. all in all, this is an excellent jacket for the great outdoors, whatever your pursuit
