Jacket made of W.L. Gore's Winstopper Tornado -fabric. The jacket has stormflap on the zipper, two pockets high enough not to distrup the use of climbing harness.



To keep the fit snug the jacket has elastic bands at cuffs and hem, it also has elasticated cord tightening at the back of collar. To cool of the jacket has armpit zips protected with piping.

Voted 4/5

I have been using this jacket for two years now and it's in good shape.



It's quite warm and I didn't get any shivers even when the mercury dropped to 0F. So far it has kept moist of the rain outside and blokked wind.



In a really bad shower it starts to leak from the seams at the shoulders.



Pros:

Venting zippers allow you to cool off, as the jacket is quite warm. Pockets are high enough not to distrup the use of climbing harness (or backpack waistbelt). The adjustable collar allows to cinch it so thight that spindrifts don't stuff snow in your neck



Cons:

Seams on shoulders, what were they thinking! The stormflap on collar could be better (look at say Arc'Teryx Delta R -jacket). And when ice climbing near 32F, the fleece-surface tends to get iced (well not really the jackets fault).
