Well priced, clever packing and highly visible

The colour of this Polaris might not be subtle, but it’s an impressive jacket which has coped comfortably with spring’s fickle weather. The polyester fabric feels soft, but is tough and stretchy with taped seams, and the generous cut is controlled by a drawcord-adjustable hem and collar.


The main zip is waterproof with an internal storm flap and garage, and another seals the high chest pocket, which incorporates a media port. The jacket cleverly packs down into a mesh pocket on the left wrist, has reflective patches and even takes an optional hood.
