    Excellent service, fast delivery, wonderful product, outstanding quality.



    I love this jacket but there are some things it could improve. Firstly the positives:
    • Its super light weighing only 400g in size L. That’s 50% lighter than my previous triple layer jacket. Time will tell if this affects its durability though.
    • The fit is excellent. I am 180cm tall and 106cm chest size and the L is a great fit with enough room for underlayers without feeling too baggy. I just wish the sleeves were longer.
    • Although I haven’t yet put this through the worst the Scottish weather can throw at it, I have been out on a few dreich days and waterproofing appears to be excellent.
    • I love the red colour
    The downsides for me are:
    • The jacket only has waist pockets which are impossible to access when wearing a rucksack, which let’s face it is always in mountains. This really needs chest pockets.
    • Breathability is not outstanding. I am a fast walker and have never found a fabric that can keep up with my rate of perspiration and this jacket it no different. On the plus side it does have very generous underarm vents for cooling down in dry weather.
    • The sleeves are too short for my liking as I prefer not wearing gloves and instead like to pull my hands inside my sleeves. It’s a minor point but a long sleeved version would be good for future models.

    Overall it’s a great product. Thanks to Cimalp for their excellent customer service and for shipping so promptly which saved me a load of Brexit grief.

    Whilst I have only had this jacket for a week (and therefore hesitant to review it fully), first impressions are good. Lightweight, well designed, smart(!) and very breathable. Everything I look for in a shell jacket.
