Columbia Men's Rainstormer Jacket - Black, Large Columbia

5.0 out of 5 stars Very impressive., 20 July 2014
The Rainstormer jacket has a relatively simple design but it is clear that Columbia has put care into equipping it for the demands of a hill-walker.

The two pockets have large openings + are rectangular in shape which means that an OS Map can easily fit inside. The material around the chin is soft which feels comfortable when, for instance, you’re leaning forwards walking uphill. The jacket is also exceptionally light and also very ‘scrunchable’ so it takes up little room in your rucksack. You might also be suspicious about the waterproofness of Columbia’s ‘Omni-Tech’ compared to a GORE-TEX rain-jacket; indeed, my last Berghaus rain-jacket with their ‘AQ2’ technology was not… Read more

It also looks good. Some cases damage the original appearance… Read more

THE BOX SET. The box is a little weak; when I unwrapped the plastic, two of the edges were ripped making the structure flimsy and unattractive. Nevertheless, the books themselves look great. Compared to the other editions which have more colourful covers, the black covers make the books look more grown-up and so they look great on a bookshelf.

THE TRILOGY. Fast-paced and very easy to read. Relatively simple language (unlike classical literature...) yet powerful themes and descriptions from Katniss's experiences in the Hunger Games. I would recommend it most to the 15-25 age group because you can relate more to the adolescent themes circulating in Katniss's mind. Without giving… Read more
