At last, I have a new hillwalking waterproof jacket

Even better, it is a sensible light blue colour, not a bright screaming orange. Unfortunately it was not possible to find one with proper zips and a decent length to it, but this one does at least have a sensible protective hood, with some wire in it, and is bulky enough that I can wear it over layers. It is a Montane Direct Ascent jacket. It was in the sale too, so I got it at a decent price.

Of course I tried on 5 or 6 other jackets first, some were very good jackets, but all had rubbish hoods with minimal protection. At least one was actively badly designed to be as useless as possible.
