The perfect mid layer under the hardshell when things start getting uncomfortable - the Women's Turret Jacket by Mountain Equipment! This synthetic jacket is filled with a moisture resistant Polarloft Micro Fiber which keeps warming you even when it is wet. You can sweat as much as you like on your ascent and your body wont cool down. Synthetics can also be compactly stored. Helium 50 is a great outer material - a wind and water repellent fabric that wicks moisture outwards and also ensures fantastic basic weather protection when wearing the jacket on its own.
Three zipped pockets provide storage space for all kinds of small items that need t be easily accessible. A drawstring on the collar and hem both prevent cold drafts from entering the jacket. The Mountain Equipment Women's Turret Jacket offers fantastic warming properties and a low weight - no matter is you wear it on its own or under a rain jacket! ;"
