Outdoors Magic: Reasonably light, proper ethical credentials, no-nonsense design, okay breathability, pit-zips. Helmet compatibility. Feels durable. Great value.
Outdoors Tragic: Could use a stiffened hood peak, occasional zip-snagging issues. Pit-zips are small.
Outdoors Grabbit? A sturdy, no-nonsense waterproof at a great price. The Torrentshell’s not astonishing light, breathable or packable, but it has proper sustainable credentials, feels decently durable and will cope with a helmet too making it surprisingly versatile.
