A thick and sturdy shell jacket that should withstand wear and tear good. Relatively quiet and a more heavy duty feel to it, than I expected. The extra length is great and help keeping warm. Two (easy) things I would love to see implemented on this model: 1/ a metal thread around the edge of the hood, so that it can be shaped and stay up without folding down over your field of vision 2/ one large pocket covering the whole backside instead of one small pocket, reaching only from the side to the middle of the back. With one big pocket, I could insert a piece of a sleeping pad, which offers great insulation when your out on a chilly day. Overall good value for the money.
Good quality shell jacket
