- A good tough technical jacket with excellent water resistance, a scratch resistant outer shell and a flexible warm fabric. It feels a lot tougher than a fleece.
The hood adjusts well, which is useful as it is cut to fit over a helmet and I don't wear one for rowing.
The jacket fits pretty closely but has enough room on me to allow a couple of thinner layers underneath and I can wear a hard shell waterproof on top.
Particularly good value for money as I got it in the sale. Less good VFM at full list price.
- The arms are a bit long, as meant for climbing where you have to stretch a good deal. This is also good for rowing but if you buy the jacket for general use.
The hood is quite large and can interfere with a shoulder bag or rucksack. It would have been better with a tape up velcro or something.
