Raid Light - Ul­tra MP+ Jacket

Price: £160.00

Stock­ist: uk.raid­light.com

Us­ing a stretch mem­brane, this jacket is in­cred­i­bly light yet man­ages to be wa­ter­proof, wind­proof and breath­able. Per­fect for fast-paced ad­ven­tures, the fit is de­signed with move­ment in mind.

Weigh­ing just 170g, the jacket is hardly no­tice­able when it’s on, or when packed away for that mat­ter, mak­ing it great for use as manda­tory kit in many trail and fell events. The shoul­ders have re­in­forced sec­tions for use with ruck­sacks and to add dura­bil­ity and the jacket can pack into its own pocket. A full-length wa­ter­proof zip en­sures it re­mains wa­ter­tight and the hood pro­vides ad­di­tional cov­er­age. There’s all-round re­flec­tive de­tail too – mak­ing the jacket a great per­former both on and off road.
