Great for moors hill walking.
Chose this jacket after reviewing these kind of jackets. The odyssey jackets got excellent reviews and after wearing this jacket in heavy rain on the moors, it is excellent. It’s breathable so keeps you dry inside and out, lightweight and you can mould the hood to get a tight fit on your head. Also bought the odyssey trousers which are as good as the jacket. Very pleased with this jacket, it’s excellent for hill walking on the unpredictable Devon moors.
Class waterproof for hiking
I needed a lightweight packable jacket and chose the Mountain Equipment Odyssey after reading lots of reviews. It feels like a well made piece of kits with plenty of adjustments to get a close fit in windy conditions.
The alpine fit styling means you may want a size bigger than the ME website suggests. I’m skinny and I did. I’m looking forward to many years of use.
