‘Alpkit’s full-on mountaineering shell, the Definition is reassuringly burly but properly refined – think James Bond reincarnated as a waterproof jacket. And the price is fantastic.’
Outdoors Magic: Tough-feeling fabric, sleekly cut, good hood, top-spec zips, great Cohaesive adjusters for gloved use, excellent value, Kermit green rocks.
Outdoors Tragic: Bordering on tight around the seat/hips for us causing minor riding-up in use. Uncompromising general fit.
Outdoors Grabbit? The Definition is arguably as good or better than some jackets costing twice as much. The cut is sleek and efficient, components are top-notch – we love the glove-friendly embedded Cohaesive cord-grips – and the unbranded fabric works well and feels reassuringly tough. The effective helmet-compatible hood means you can use it for anything from full-on mountaineering to general hill-walking. Stupendous value, but bear in mind the the sleek fit doesn’t play well with excess baggage…
