IT'S GOOD

For camp­ing in win­ter you need a re­ally arm jacket and this is a good ption. It's packed with syn­thetic su­la­tion and is in­stantly armer than most other jack­ets atured here. It has some nice es­ign de­tails in­clud­ing an su­lated in­ter­nal draft baf­fle ehind the front zip and at the top the zip there is a large area of oft fleece around the chin for ore com­fort. The hood has face and rear vol­ume ad­just­ment and is again crammed with in­su­la­tion, so is re­ally warm, and it moves with the head. The two zipped pock­ets are deep and very well in­su­lated.

HOW­EVER

It's very heavy and has a larger packed size due to hav­ing all that ex­tra in­su­la­tion. A slight nig­gle is that the cuffs are just elas­ti­cated, with­out Vel­cro ad­just­ment, and on my wrists there was a small air gap – so I felt the need to cinch in these ar­eas to fit more closely. There was slight move­ment in the cuffs when I raised my arms, so not quite per­fect. The pock­ets are quite low so if you are wear­ing a ruck­sack belt it may ob­scure ac­cess. There are cheaper jack­ets, but this is very warm.

VER­DICT

Very warm jacket with a bet­ter hood than many, mak­ing it ideal for win­ter use, but some small de­tails nig­gle and it is heavy.
