5.0 out of 5 stars
Excellent severe weather jacket, 19 Jan 2012
This jacket replaces my old Keela Munro.
It's significantly lighter than the old model.
It's warmer than most shell jackets so not ideal for summer use.
Very protective, totally waterproof, breathability I think is better than goretex in real world Scottish conditions.
Proper mountain hood, pit zips.
No longer made in Scotland, but seems well built.
Olive is a kind of grey-green that is good for wildlife watching without looking too military. Fabric is quieter than most mountain jackets, but not as quiet as peached hunting jackets. Th colour is much better than the old 'Covert' colour which was abit light.
Sizing wise I went for the M, I'm 178cm and 80kg and it's pretty spot on. Plenty of room for a fleece, and just enough room for a belay jacket instead of the fleece.
It's longer than the current trend for very short jackets, but nor is it a full thigh length.
As a three season jacket for Scottish weather I think it is the best available at any price.
