The Firefox Jacket from Mountain Equipment is one of the very lightest three layer breathable waterproof jackets available. Despite being made from Gore-tex Pro Shell and featuring a full front zip, it still weighs less than most of its competitors. And now at only £159 (RRP £199) it is also cheaper than your average Gore-tex jacket.

For those that want serious protection from the weather, but without the weight penalty the Firefox may be just the ticket.
