Com­pressLite II

Trail (UK) - - Best For Budget -

£65 Men's S-XXXXL Women's 8-20 Weight 484g (size L) Outer polyester In­su­la­tion Cli­maPlus hol­low fi­bre polyester


The low price and weight make this at­trac­tive to back­pack­ers but it also comes with a small 23x12cm stuff­sack, which makes it very com­press­ible. You get a good size range com­pared to other jack­ets, too. There is a hem draw­cord and a draught strip be­hind the front zip, which are lack­ing on some jack­ets. The hood has elas­ti­ca­tion and there are two waist pock­ets with zipped ac­cess. The hood fits rea­son­ably well de­spite not hav­ing any draw­cords. The in­su­la­tion level is good for au­tumn and spring and use­ful for stash­ing in your ruck­sack all day and throw­ing on for a short sum­mit brew.


Other jack­ets are much warmer and more suit­able for win­ter or chilly nights in a camp­site. An­noy­ingly, the cuffs are quite loose with large draughty gaps that al­low warm air out and cold air in. The fore­arms are a lit­tle baggy in gen­eral, while the body is shorter than oth­ers. Over­all the fit is a lit­tle un­usual, so try be­fore buy­ing. Like many jack­ets, the pock­ets are quite low so ac­cess is eas­ily ob­scured by a ruck­sack belt.


A low-priced, light­weight, com­pact jacket that is great for short sum­mit vis­its, but the fit is a bit un­usual and it’s not the warm­est.
