Come Wind or High Water

I acquired an awesome jacket yesterday for half the marked price – a Regatta Arran 3-in-1. This bad boy comes with the following:

  • Waterproof and breathable Isotex 10000 XPT coated taslan fabric with Atl durable water repellent treatment. XPT X-treme Performance Technology fabric- 30% more breathable than standard Isotex fabrics
  • Detachable technical hood with adjuster
  • Hi-tech water repellent centre front zip with slimline stormflap and inner zip and chin guard
  • Underarm ventilation zips
  • Hi-tech laser cut pockets with water repellent zips
  • Map pocket
  • Adjustable shockcord hem
  • Warm but super lightweight insulation
  • Easily compressible

When I donned this cloak of water-resistance I felt like a hand going into a glove – it fit perfectly and kept me snug and warm. This is due in part to the jacket inside the jacket, it comes with two! The outer jacket is the mainframe, the big boss, while there is another layer of insulation inside and this is guy is what keeps the cold at bay. Take the inner lining out and you have a rather awesome summer jacket, waterproof, windproof…awesome. Should keep me warm on those hikes up and down hills.
