Gore-Tex PacLite/Weight: 369g/’WaterTight’ pit, chest pocket and front zips/Laminated chin guard and DryCuffs/Helmet compatible hood/Big Stone 0114 263 4261, www.arcteryx.com.
Arcteryx were one of the originators of the now much mimicked zip proofing and micro seam taping process. Alongside such staples, the bare bones of 2-layer PacLite has a complex nylon face fabric thrown in to add durability. Lightweight is maintained despite roomy, armour ready body and sleeve cut plus voluminous adjustable hood with over lid fitting in mind, albeit a boarding piss pot.
