The 2020 Keele Jacket is an adaptable softshell, comfortable enough to be worn as a fleece while weather-resistant enough to shrug off a spring shower.
Mountain Hardwear says:
Water repellant and as soft as a fleece-softshells might be the best invention since sliced bread. But throw some PB and jam on that bread, and whoa... That's the Keele™ Jacket. It's the next step in the progression of an invention that's been brilliant from the start. It even has harness-compatible pockets to stash your send fuel. (PB&Js recommended.)
Mountain Hardwear's 2020 Keele Jacket is a hard-wearing softshell, ideal for everything from the hills to the pub. On the softshell spectrum, this is a balanced option between comfort and water-resistance, and the DWR applied to the exceptionally tough and stretchy face fabric ensures that the Keele will keep you dry through inclement weather.
Based on a midlayer to enhance comfort, the Keele features a slimline fit and the handwarmer pockets are set high to better fit under a hipbelt. The brushed backing is incredibly soft, and provides excellent insulation from autumn chills. The Keele has quickly proved to be the right jacket for 90% of trips, rarely overwhelmed and very reliable.
