Storm Ultra-Lite 3-layer fabric / Weight: 480g / Fleece-lined collar / 2-way waterproof pit-zips Contact: Silverfish 01752 313 253 or www.silverfish-uk.com.
We have had issues with the DWR coating previously, but to date no such worries have surfaced with regards to the new Aquanot.
With a square cut, the jacket suits a more upright position, especially as the sleeves aren’t the longest. At least they are adorned with a huge amount of reflective material. Seam construction is as tough as ever and the 3-layer fabric is abrasion resistant, if a little bulky. Thankfully the waterproof pit zips are well positioned. A welded Napoleon pocket may include mp3 cable routing but you’d struggle to fit even a large iPod inside.
