Gore-Tex PacLite/Weight: 526g (Medium.) Mouldable peaked collapsible hood. Waterproof zipped main, front and sleeve pockets/Inner mesh pockets/Columbia 00800 4378 7833, www.columbia.com.
Whilst the zip adds bulk to Columbia’s package, it’s easily removed, loping weight and leaving a snug high neck. Despite the intentions of its PacLite backbone, the Cinder Cone retains a robust feel to its rip stop fabric with a roomy enough fit to allow multiple layers or padding. Great sleeve articulation combined with numerous proofed and concealed pocketing makes this a solid allrounder.
