VERY DISAPPOINTING - OR, AM I EXPECTING TOO MUCH ?
Cut & length of jacket. A hood that turns with your head.
One of the most un-waterproof 'waterproofs' that I have ever possessed. Whenever I have used this in heavy rain I have got VERY WET !
I bought this on the strength of reviews read in various magazines, and I feel that I have totally wasted my money. Does anyone actually test this in bad weather ?
Have just got back from a rainy New Year weekend in Glencoe, and while walking a 12 mile section of the West Highland Way from Fort William (which doesn't get above 270 Metres and is mainly in forest), I finished the walk not just damp, but TOTALLY SOAKED !
I had put a Buff in one the pockets (with waterproof zips), and this had to be wrung out as it was so wet.
Am I expecting too much that a jacket that cost me £280 should actually keep me dry ??
Above all, a waterproof jacket should keep you dry, and on this, it fails miserably.
