    Voted 5/5

    As with the Njal, I really like the concept of this jacket.
    On high altitude, especially when cold, membrane jackets doesn't work very well and you for sure don't need the need the "super-duper-water-proof-tex" as precipitation comes down in solid form.

    The fabric in Einride is eta-proof, a tightly vowen cotton textile. It is very windproof, lets your sweat out well and withstand rain pretty good, at least for a couple of hours.

    I like the design. An excellent hood, extremely large pockets and the cut let you make all those weird climbing moves without being restricted by the jacket.

    The material is smooth, light and soft and doesn't make the normal shell-jacket sounds.

    The Njal is of anorak cut, but the Einride is a "normal jacket", which I personally like much better as the procedure of pulling the Njal on and off over your head can be very annoying at times.

    If you're sick of sweating too much in a membrane jacket and want to try out another approach, this jacket may be worth checking out.

    Klattermusen is going hard for safety measures and some interesting details are the attached compass and whistle.

    On the minus side:
    The fabric is not as strong as the one in a normal membrane jacket.
    The price of Klattermusen products are very high.
