/ Adidas outdoor kit - jacket
If the kit is well designed and fit for purpose, then what does not quite sit right for you?
However if the kit is poorly designed and low spec materials then I would walk away from it.
Hi Addidas have been working with some of the British Mountain Guides, especially those based in N. Wales to produce some great kit. I can't speak about your specific jacket but the verdict on the whole is VERY positive.
In addition they have also been working with a lot of the top euro wad climbers to develop technical clothing (e.g. Sanson, Sasha etc).
As a side note: don't buy Gore-Tex PacLite it breathes like shit in comparison to the alternatives (including Activ-Shell).
And yes, I'd already decided to steer well clear of Paclite, and Active Shell for that matter too. cheers, John
Take the punt, the stuff I've seen has been really good. As you say you can always send it back if you don't like it.
