Ticks all the boxes
A great selection of jackets to choose from at Go Outdoors, but I’m surprised that with the leading brands there are so few without hoods.
The Rab Altus is perfect for my requirements, being lightweight, windproof and not too bulky. It slides on easily over other clothing, where others tended to grip. I also prefer the slightly elasticated wrist design rather than adjustable Velcro used by other brands.
Aesthetically it’s a well-designed jacket which I hope will prove durable over time.
