Topic - Lightweight SMOCK... But how light?

Murray Walker - on 20 Aug 2012
I am planning a purchase. It will take a lot of research cos thats half the fun!
I want a lightweight Hardshell smock for everything, which is mainly trail running and Alpine mountaineering/ maybe some mild wet Scottish winter.
I am a soft shell/windshirt kind of guy so dont want to live in the thing, but it needs to be tough enough to if needs be.

Does anyone have any experience of 2.5 Layer fabrics (Pertex Shiled, etc) in terms of durability. Was looking at the North Face Triumph Anorak.
What about something like the RAB Demand Pull on, is that too bulky and sweaty for running?

I know next year Montane are doing the Minimus in smock version but it has an under helmet hood. Cant imagine I would want to take my helmet on and off every time I want to change my hood!
