The Top Extreme Jacket is constructed from a high quality 3 layer MP+ waterproof fabric that performs well for both hydrostatic head and MVTR testing. This lightweight jacket boasts many useful features; firstly, the hood is well designed and can be completely rolled away into the collar. The hood also ensures you get a great fit with adjustable shock cord around the face and around the back of the head.
The zips used are all water resistant and there's also a storm flap behind the main zip for extra protection. The jacket neatly packs into its own hand pocket, which features a double sided zip for easy stowage of the jacket and also two hook and loop straps that allow you to fasten the small package onto your hip belt or pack.
The Top Extreme Jacket provides the best compromise between lightweight and comfort. The MP+ membrane is waterproof and highly breathable, even during exercise.
Raidlight's Top Extreme Jacket is a nice piece of kit with some excellent features for lightweight backpacking and mountain marathon style racing. Raidlight even incorporate a clear pvc window for checking your watch or apparatus on the go without having to fiddle about with your sleeve.
The hand warmer pockets aren't as big as you might expect, so if you've got large hands they might not work for you.
