- excellant extremely lighweight gillet which can be worn either over a fleece or just over a base layer for extra core warmth, used it on cool mornings nad evenings on spring walks and it really worked well. In a rucksack it takes up no space at all and weighs abolutely nothing. Great piece of kit.
- On the first day after wearing a 20L day rucksack over it, the gillet was all rubbed up down the side and front panel. Took it back to Cotswolds and they happily replaced it. It is designed for active mountaineering so I would expect it to be designed to use with a rucksack, so assume it was a one-of flaw. Have still to retry the new one with a rucksack.
