  • Stealth construction techniques used thoughout.

  • 2-way water resistant centre front zip with innr and outer laminated storm flaps.

  • 4 large external fully taped pockets behind narrow water water resistant zips can be used whilst wearing a rucksack or harness.

  • 1 fully taped GPS/ski pass pocket.

Great jacket
A very nice jacket, which is not only extremely wind and waterproof but also pleasantly light (although nowhere near as light as true lightweight jackets). It has an exceptionally good hood which will keep the wearer dry even in the most torrential downpour. I also like the inclusion of numerous ventilation pockets (handy when things get a bit warm) with sealed zips which prevent water from seeping in. The pockets are well placed and are accessible even when wearing a rucksack and harness. The cuffs are well designed, made of strong Velcro, and adjust to a wide variety of wrist sizes. The jacket also has an internal snow gaiter, which in my opinion could be a little tighter, but does a pretty good job of keeping snow out. This is an altogether excellent jacket suitable for Alpine climbing, the Scottish winter and hiking on summer days. Top marks.
