With a robust softshell fabric that combines a weather-resisting face with a snug furry inside, the Krypton works as either a midlayer or an outer. It's a good do-it-all top for year-round hillwalking, says Dan Bailey, though a few climbing-friendly tweaks would have made it more versatile still.
It looks super furry inside! Is it sort of like a Buffalo (although obviously without the outer pertex)? If that's high loft fleece I could imagine that it would be a really warm piece, particularly once under a shell?
And are the snowy photos fresh - from the last week? Looks so nice. I'm still umming and ahhing over coming up for a couple of days as it's half term holidays - although the weather hasn't been great so far. Fingers crossed it might cool down enough at the weekend to make a quick visit worth it!
Yeah kind of, though maybe a bit more furry and a bit less like pile, if that makes sense.
Most of the pics are the week before last in the NW, a brief cold snap (I had to de-ice the car for the first time this season). There was a dusting of snow again last week but temps have been up and down since then (mainly up). It's apparently cooling down towards the weekend. Worth a long drive? I wouldn't like to say
