- It's light, stuff able into a small space. It is warm on a cold day. I maintained a comfortable temperature just walking around in it all day. I plan to use it as a belay jacket. It does not feel sweaty despite the materials used so that suggests good ventilation and breath ability. It's colour goes with most things but I was not looking for a fashion accessory. I like the draw strings which can tighten the jacket in. Length and fit is good. I have not tried the hood I think that will be ok.
- The zip seems to be the only thing I would pick a hole in. It is just it can undo from the bottom. Maybe this is a feature or I am rubbish at doing zips up but at 50, I feel I have had enough practice to know maybe this could be a weak point. (E.g Coming undone on the hill when it's blowing). The hood fastening also is a bit pants.
