The light weight isn’t to be mistaken for flimsy material however, it feels high quality to the touch and performs impressively against rain and wind whilst remaining breathable. The inner lining is soft to the touch making it comfortable to wear directly on the skin and easy to pull on over other layers. The outside is made with GORE-TEX Paclite PLUS 2.5-layer, which is 100% polyamide and has a 20D, dry-touch mini-ripstop weave face, laminated to an ePTFE membrane this provides a hydrostatic head of 28,000.
