NanulsMy favorite jacket

Voted 5/5

Officially my favorite piece of kit this jacket is awsome when the temperature drops. Ideal in winter for Alpine climbing or walking in the park the G2 is in everyway an excellent softshell. The numerous ventelation pockets also mean that when temperatures do change you don't have to keep taking it off and putting it back on again. My only critisism is that the hood is too small and doesn't protect the wearer from rain well enough, then again if you are wearing this in torrential rain, your wearing the wrong jacket.
