‘A nicely-specced, medium weight, medium-warmth down all-rounder, the Electron is a cracking all-conditions, cold weather companion whether you’re in Scotland, the Alps or a Himalayan tea house’
Outdoors Magic: Great warmth to weight, water-resistant fabric and hydrophobic down ups versatility, excellent hood, thorough detailing, dry/cold conditions belay potential, very orange.
Outdoors Tragic: Sized quite large for non-belay jacket use.
Outdoors Grabbit? The combination of high-lofting, PFC-free hydrophobic 800 fill power goose down and water-resistant Pertex Endurance fabric makes for a very damp-resistant down jacket. Ideal for say, Scotland on a ‘good’ day, but also fine for the Alps and beyond. The hood’s excellent, design is thorough and it’s decently warm for the weight too with plenty of space for additional inner layers. Thumbs up for the free-flowing Vislon zips too. An excellent all-round down jacket that’s appreciably warmer than alternatives that are 150g or so lighter making it arguably worth the extra weight.
