What price is it because i can't remember seeing one in the article?
If it's not waterproof inside as well, would expect it to get wet from your shell, when you slip it over to belay. Hence, probably not all singing, all dancing for Ecose!
That's an interesting point actually. And one that makes perfect sense as the inner is indeed, not waterproof.
My feeling with this is that it is not the perfect belay jacket for UK use and for Scotland I would always go synthetic out of choice.
I would say that rather than being warmer than most synthetic jackets it is probably as warm. It's certainly no warmer than my Fission SL or the old Das Parka that I practically used to live in!
Hope this helps
