Outstanding Jacket

This my second Keb jacket, my first is about 2 years old and still 100%.
I chose to buy another in a larger size purely for a little extra room for use during winter,
i have used my Keb snowshoeing/touring for 4-5 days camping in -14.
And in Lapland during winter at minus 30 and it was an excellent working and touring jacket!
in summer i use it for trekking/Hiking/Mountaineering.
I especially like the Keb hood, it is like a fortress in bad/Extreme weather conditions,
The G1000 is fantastic and if you want to reinforce the waterproofing simply use the Greenland wax on the area you require, Great!
Thanks

I could not recomend this jacket at all!

Worn for the third time and it rained, I was as wet inside as I was out! this was in no way testing conditions, on an archery field with my daughter, then I froze like I was in a fridge!
Very expensive item which looks good but fails to deliver. it says to use Greenland wax to increase waterproofing but I didn't want a greasy jacked for in and out of vehicle use! my recommendation , buy a Patagonia! this was purchased to replace one that was 21 years old and still worked fine.... I lost it on a trip, what a loss that has proved to be as I now need another jacket.... another Patagonia I think!
