/ Removing mesh from my jacket.
I'm now using fit for commuting to work but wondering whether anyone has ever removed the mesh liner and snow skirt from the inside in an attempt to make it more lighter and compact and more importantly, will this have an adverse effect on the waterproofness and breathability of the jacket.
The mesh as far as I know is there for 2 reasons - to protect the membrane underneath, and to wick moisture so that it can pass through the membrane more readily. If you cut it off it'll probably make a noticeable difference to the breathability, and I guess the membrane will become damaged more easily as well.
