A great all-year-round lightweight, comfortable jacket

The Garwhal jacket by Mountain Equipment is a really nifty waterproof. It uses Gore-Tex Paclite technology which means it’s great for hikers who like to pack really light — you can pack it really small into your backpack when you don’t need to use it.

Yet the Garwhal jacket is also the kind of jacket you can wear all day long because it’s so lightweight and comfortable.

The Garwhal jacket has a great ‘alpine fit’ which means you can wear a couple of layers under it if you need to. The AquaGuard® front zip gives you extra weather protection when the rain hits you.

High placed pockets, with a generously long zip, give you easy access to whatever you wish to carry in your pocket, and also makes it easier if you’re wearing a back pack.

A great all-year-round lightweight, comfortable jacket which slides nice and small into your backpack, which you can easily take it out when the weather turns.
