I have just reviewed a new jacket from the Mountain Warehouse. It’s a Bracken Extreme 3 in 1 Waterproof Jacket and it’s great!
It’s has an outer layer that is guaranteed waterproof for three years and a comfortable warm shell inner layer.
It can be worn outer only, inner only or together whatever suits you or the conditions. Here are a few pictures:
Worn together it is very warm, lightweight and comfortable with loads of zipped pockets. The two side pockets are fleece lined all around for hand warmth. An outer breast pocket and an inner breast pocket are cleverly concealed inside the coat zip flap making it very secure and weatherproof for phones, iPods or hand held GPS. There are two more pockets in the shell coat along with inner patch pockets as well.
The coat is mesh lined with underarm zips for ventilation on warmer days.
The peaked hood is a good size and can be detached and stored in the coat collar.
All in all, the Bracken Extreme 3 in 1 is a very good jacket and very good value for money.
