Lowe Alpine's Northern Lights Jacket employs zoned synthetic insulation for warmth and comfort with a Pertex Endurance outer for weather shedding performance.

Lowe Alpine says: Embrace the elements! This high spec, insulated mountain jacket utilises Pertex® Endurance technology - a highly breathable, water and wind resistant coating, enabling it to maintain its superior loft and warmth in challenging conditions. Using Cocona insulation to facilitates moisture transfer and accelerate drying, the cleverly constructed Northern Lights Jacket features a fully adjustable hood and stretch cuffs to provide the perfect companion for long days in the mountains.

|Pertex Endurance Lightweight outer Fabric - with a 1,000mm Hydrostatic Head and high breathability rating Pertex Endurance is a super-lightweight fabric whilst still delivering good protection and abrasion resistance. Click Logo to read more...

Lowe Alpine's Northern Lights Jacket is a synthetic insulated jacket with a Pertex Endurance outer shell which provides a very high degree of water resistance - along with water repellent zippers its clear that this jacket is designed to shed quite a bit of weather before you need to put a waterproof jacket over it - much like a softshell would.

The beauty of this performance is that you don't have to put a waterproof jacket on if the weather's changeable - the Pertex Endurance shell will deal with intermittent light showery conditions without a problem. The outer fabric is also blessed with a matt finish that looks good.

We also like the features on this jacket - the hood can be cinched into the head meaning it moves as you move, there's a nice wide patch of fleece around the neck area and the arms are finished with a low bulk stretch cuff that gives a good seal yet won't hold water like a knitted cuff if it gets wet.

Add to that zoned insulation, 60g per sq m in the body and 40g in the arms and you have a very able jacket that keeps you warm and sheds showers.

A bit wary about buying Lowe Alpine as have not seen their products recently. Very pleasantly surprised. It looks much better than the pictures. I have never felt hot or toasty in this jacket but i have never felt cold either. Just comfortable in temps between 0 and 12 degrees. The pertex endurance shell is super at keeping the rain out. It sizes a bit on the larger size. Recommended
