WINNER: Mouse5

The Alpkit Gravitas is one of the worlds lightest breathable and fully waterproof jackets. A 3 layer jacket with simple but effective features to maximise protection and minimise fuss. Packing down into its own stuff sack and weighing less than your lunch, it’s ideal for chucking in your bag ‘just in case’ - safe in the knowledge that if the weather breaks, Gravitas has got you covered.

Gravitas uses state of the art ultra fine 7 denier nylon yarns in the face and back, and a super thin PU membrane, to give the lightest 3 layer waterproof fabric we could find. 3L fabrics are more comfortable next to the skin, and more durably waterproof than 2 or 2.5L fabrics.


  • Neat, semi-elastic cuffs mean you can push your sleeves up to aid cooling – no velcro to wrestle, just simple and quick
  • Cuff shaped over the back of the hand for extra protection
  • Minimal seams for lighter weight and breathability
  • Narrow seam allowance
  • No visible stitching, to reduce snag and wear points
  • Bonded hem and cuff construction
  • Narrow internal flap to back up the water resistant front zip
  • Semi elasticated hood opening – allows you to pull hood up without undoing the front zip, and holds the hood closer in to the neck when not being worn.
  • Single hood adjuster cinches everything in and prevents hood blowing off
  • Stiffened and wired peak protects the face
  • Full hem drawcord for maximum adjustability.
  • Comes with it’s own colour coded stuff sack including a handy clip loop for maximum portability
  • Stiffened and wired peak protects the face
  • Single concealed zipped chest pocket
