‘A short-cut, two-layer Gore-Tex jacket with a decent hood that’s best suited for lower-level use and happiest with overtrousers’
Outdoors Magic: Reliably waterproof, decently low-level hood, pleasant aesthetics, solid feel from the lined soft fabric.
Outdoors Tragic: Pretty heavy, short cut, fabric not as breathable as some Gore-Tex.
Outdoors Grabbit? If want something for low-level and hill-walking rather than a full-on mountain jacket, the Jerome’s quite a neat-looking, short-cut shell made from dependable two-layer Gore-Tex. The spec and styling are neat, but it’s a little short for us and the fabric isn’t as breathable as more expensive versions of the fabric. Expensive at £220, but at the current £110 price, it’s actually very good value.
