Checking RABs website, you won't Think that must be a rogue picture of the alpine jacket, which is still a windshirt style thing but a bit heavier and rather more featured. The hood cords are a bit of a give away I think.
(I think the previous picture should have been repeated instead?)
Oh, if anyone has a cirrus pull on and is after the wind top then be slightly careful about the cut - its seemingly somewhat different (substantially shorter arms on me when tried in Cotswolds.). Logical I guess because one is for walkers and the other runners etc.
Oh a couple of questions:
Do they have any comparative/ball park figures on roughly how windproof the boreas fabric is? We were wondering on another thread.
Oh and why is the nimbus so much heavier than the Montanes lite speed? It looks to have the same fabric(? a heavier version?) and a very similar feature set but rather heavier. Thats been confusing me for a bit.
