Mountain Equipment Women's Manaslu GTX Pro Jacket
A Proper Quality Outdoor Jacket
Really enjoying my new jacket, and purchased during a sale so even better value for money! I can see this jacket as being one I will get many years wear out of, providing me with everything I need for my outdoor adventures. It fits perfectly, allows space for an additional under layer whilst also appearing fitted and is windproof and waterproof, keeping me nice and toasty in this glorious British weather! Great service in the shop (Gateshead) too, enabling me to talk about the jacket's features before deciding whether it was a garment I wished to purchase. This is something I really appreciate when I'm tight on cash and only wanting to buy quality gear that I know will do the job I need it to do. Overall, very happy with my purchase. Thank you!

Love this jacket
This jacket is excellent quality and is true to size, and allows for layers underneath without being too tight fitting. Zips are easy to use in the cold and wet weather with gloves on or when in the rain, and are big enough for carrying essentials. I would not recommend putting a phone in the pocket without extra protection from rain but that is something which is needed whatever jacket you buy. I use this jacket for walking in all weathers and am sure that while it is not cheap, you get what you pay for and this will keep me dry for many years to come. Buy one!

An excellant jacket!
The fit is good with no bunching, but still enough room to allow good range of arm/upper body movement.
I was concerned that the underarm vent zips might rub when worn for long periods with a rucksack, but that has not happened and in fact the jacket is extremely comfortable to wear.
Very breathable fabric, with no compromise on waterproofing, and still very light. Nice large pockets, and the hood can be tightened down with 2 separate drawstrings to give a really good fit for very bad weather.
In short - I love this jacket and would fully recommend it to anyone!

Multifunctional jacket suitable for all conditions
Having purchased an older version of this jacket 7 years ago I was delighted to find the newer model on sale when the zip went on my old one. The material has been improved slightly to make it even more wind resistant and slightly warmer when cold and windy yet still breathable on a warm wet day.

Serious kit but flattering too - a winning combo!
I've tried a lot of jackets in my quest for the perfect combo of something that does the job & looks good too, and this jacket for me is a winning combo. It's very light & well-made. Highly water- and wind-proof but still light enough to wear in warm weather. It's roomy enough to cope with a couple of fleeces underneath, but tailored and not too bulky, so you avoid the 'Michellin Man' look. It is cut slightly long at the back, which is flattering and practical. Great colour combo too. The only slight negative is that it is a little noisy! The fabric is quite crunchy, but don't let that put you off.

Great Jacket in red
Managed to get this jacket in the sale for a very good price, was dubuous about getting the red but was so glad i did. Its a great colour with contrasting purple zips. This jacket is a replacement for a jacket I got in Canada a decade ago, if it lasts as well as that one I will be very pleased. The jacket is very windproof with a great hood, only downside is side pockets are not very deep.

I have taken this jacket out twice since it arrived - on both occasions I was out in very cold wintery conditions. As testament to the jacket I didn't notice anything annoying about the garment and I was dry, warm (as part of a layering system), and it fitted alongside my other clothes and equipment seamlessly. It feels like a quality piece and I expect it will last me a long time. Really pleased and would recommend it highly.

This jacket is all I'd hoped it be and more! Great investment piece but probably would not have paid full price for it (mainly due to my finances not the quality of the jacket).
So far it has kept me warm and dry on my bike and looking forward to taking it on it's first hiking trip!
