Since this initial review, I have used the jacket on a number of day walks and for work, where I am often seeing my customers in an outdoor environment.
As readers probably know, the weather this autumn has been mild and generally dry , so the opportunity to test the jacket in heavy rain has been reduced to two events, both when working. Both times the jacket kept my dry and comfortable, I was particularly happy with the hood, which fitted well and I was able to see clearly from it.
The longer length of the jacket compared to many is an added bonus to protection but of course adds to the overall weight of the garment.
As I said in my previous post, I am recommending this as a day walk jacket, where weight is not an issue or perhaps a good value backpacking jacket for beginners or people on a limited budget.
The jacket is waterproof, there is good cuff adjustment, a double storm flap on the main zip and there are water resistant zips throughout. This jacket is not as breathable as some of the more expensive jackets, but at the current price of £89.99 gives some good features and a contemporary look for a value for money price.
On the basis of my further experience with the Berghaus Knoydart, I have increased my rating to 3.5/5
