Tom and Wee Davie
I have to disagree with your points about the hood. This jacket would not fit the bill for my idea of a mountain jacket due to this.
The Gold Thread and Wee Davie by Norman Macleod
Also your point about a fold away hood looking better doesn't apply to me. I like jackets with their hoods out. TobyA 10 Dec In reply to Wee Davie: Agree on this, I also have a marmot softshell with a zip away hood. I always keep it out and use it over a helmet, but its not very good and doesn't offer much protection. I'm not sure why they bother really, unless its for people who forget hats regularly.
/ NEW REVIEW: Marmot Super Hero Jacket: by Jack Geldard
If you are going to have a hood, you might as well have a good one. Does your Rab one have a good hood? Jack - does it have a two-way zip? Mine does and I hate it as it starts coming undone quite easily. Again god knows why they put it on who uses a soft shell like a belay jacket over a harness? I'm a bit concerned that the review of this Marmot Super Hero has comments like 'would be at home on the Eiger'.
That, to me, that means it should function adequately in a howling full on blizzard. I would ask that the UKC testers actually use jackets etc as fully as possible before reporting back. Jack Geldard comments he will use the jacket in La Grave, which I would argue is likely to be a less serious use than as a full mtn outer shell. Hope I don't appear needlessly critical here. In reply to rich: What about beginner winter and Alpine climbers reading that 'journalistic-y ending'? I would argue that it is misleading to them.
Tom Ripley 10 Dec Perhaps Gore have made Windstopper more breathable than when I had it, but I got rid of it after a year because it just didn't breathe. In those days Windstopper wasn't marketed as a "softshell" like it is today. In my opinion Windstopper is a very poor softshell because of it's lack of breathability.
I'm not having a pop at you yet. When your next reviews appear for 'belay underpants' or whatever, I'll mercilessly slate them then. Cheers Davie. Fair enough, the great thing about UKC reviews is that they are linked to a forum and you can have your say. Not as good as a full weight hood.. If I'd have thought it was great - I would have said 'it's great'. If I'd have thought it was rubbish, I'd have said 'it's rubbish'. It's in the middle. The possible good points of folding away and looking 'streetwise' don't affect you. You now know that you wouldn't buy this jacket and perhaps I have done my job as a reviewer?
Toby A: The zip on the front is a one ended zip. The hood zip didn't come undone on me at all. I also had the hood out all of the time. About this Item: Scholastic, Wilkinson, Barry illustrator.
