Long story short - there's little else this good for this price and from a UK company, making effective clothing for the UK weather.
Lighter. More breathable. Harder wearing.
Revolutionary lightweight and breathable 3 layer waterproof alpine shell. Engineered for fast moving activities where weight saving is essential. Utilising an exclusive PERTEX® Shield+ laminate which combines a 7 denier nylon face, a 7 micron breathable membrane and a super light 7 denier tricot backer. Critically designed to save weight without compromising functionality; weighing only 140g with micro-taped seams to increase breathable surface area and a 12-13 seam stitch count for tight, clean and strong seams throughout compared to an industry average of only 8. Pre-elasticated under-helmet hood, articulated arms and a tiny pack size into its own pocket makes it perfect for any alpine trip.
