JanVanGenkWarm and light!

Voted 5/5

Very well designed. Thought-out reinforcement placing. The high collar is excellent - body heat cannot escape when zipped. Due to a built-in elastic cord the hood closes around the face very firmly. The hood is also easy to adjust with one hand only and even with the gloves on. The inside pocket is fairly easy to access and roomy.
Beware, the French sizes are usually smaller, I use to wear the size S/M clothing, and for this jacket size L turned out to be appropriate!
