It looks almost identical to last year's Mermaid but there have been some subtle upgrades on this Gore-Tex Paclite to improve form and function.

The new removable mesh chest pocket, hidden inside the jacket, comes in very useful, and the concealed draw pulls at the neck and hem are a lot neater and easier to use too.

Stretch XCR panels located on the waist and hips improve fit, and you get a fleece neck, but the jacket still looks baggy compared to Gore's Alpine (see below) and there's no pocket at the back either. Yet when it comes to Paclite it's always a fine line between features and pack size and the Mermaid does both really well, and will keep you nicely dry on wet winter rides.
