‘Two jackets in one, the Reversa has a ‘warm’ side and a ‘windproof’ one so you can adjust it to suit your preference by simply turning it inside out and back again.’
Outdoors Magic: Reversibility gives versatility, warm or just windproof, light, small packing, sleek fit, copes well with dampness and dries fast.
Outdoors Tragic: Pockets on one side only, a little expensive.
Outdoors Grabbit? The genius of the Reversa is that it does double duty. One way round it’s a lightweight, reasonably warm, insulated jacket. The other, it’s effectively more or less a simple windproof. Which means you can tune the jacket to suit conditions. It also copes well with damp in a classic, synthetic way, has a neat cut, a simple but effective hood. And getting two jackets in one, means the slightly pricey initial cost is slightly easier to bear. Our one quibble? There are hand-pockets on the warm side only and no chest pocket either way round. Apart from that, it’s a quirky but brilliant bit of kit for all-round, lightweight mountain use.
