Whether you're winter hiking in the Canadian wilderness or out on the trail closer to home, with the Womens La Cumbre Trail Jacket from Jack Wolfskin you get more freedom of movement and better protection. The former is thanks to the fabric's stretch performance and the special cut. The latter comes in the form of a cosy hood with elasticated edging, and the superior wind-resistant characteristics of this fabric compared to other varieties of fleece. The thumb loops serve both functions: protection and freedom of movement. They stop the jacket sleeves riding up and bunching, and seal them tight against the cold. The two raised pockets are accessible when you are carrying a backpack with the waist belt fastened.
