    I have tried it twice, keeps me warm in the wind and does not make me to warm in the sun. The jacket has a nice feel, and lots of smart details.

    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.

    Great garment already tried in wind, rain and snow. I am 1.73 m for 78 kg, size L fits me well, slightly long sleeves and waist but in the mountains ok. Lightweight, functional, useful and easy to find the magnet, good adjustment. Possible improvements: an external pocket on the chest, with the backpack closed the ones on the waist are not usable, the velcro cuffs would be better if it were continuous and not in 2 strips as now.

    Bought it for my son after buying one for myself (previous version). I must say that I was very satisfied. The jacket is a must to keep in your backpack where it can be stored easily as it is very compact. Tried in different weather conditions. Both in summer under three hours of pouring rain or very strong wind and in winter at -15 ° C with wind over 100 km / h has behaved well (it protects very well from wind and rain). Compared to the previous version have been made improvements that make it even more practical. Moreover, thing not to underestimate, the relationship quality/price is remarkable and this allows to have a shell of elevated invoice without svenarsi. Absolutely recommended

    Just what I was looking for, comfortable, waterproof, breathable, windproof, ideal to be always protected and safe (it has the RECCO reflector) even in the harshest conditions. Recommended!

    I found a super top jacket, the best I've seen, and if we talk about the price and quality is out of the ordinary we see in stores, the fabric is the best I've seen, highly recommended.
