Gear review: Keela Cairn jacket
This jacket is designed for adventures, but adventures don’t have to be conquering mountains or trekking into uncharted forests.
For most of us, an adventure entails a brisk Sunday afternoon hike followed by a pint and a bite to eat at a cosy pub. And there’s nothing wrong with that.
Of course, even on these mild adventures, we still need to stay dry and comfortable and that’s why we’d recommend something like the Cairn.
Keela make clothing that is used by the military and emergency services so you know it’s going to be good quality. Not only is the Cairn water and windproof and extremely lightweight, it features Keela’s Aquaflex fabric, which uses three-layer technology to provide breathability and durability.
Other features include plenty of pockets, articulated sleeves and adjustable cuffs and a two-way zip with inner storm flap.
And if you really want to go proper adventuring it also features harness compatible pockets and a helmet compatible hood.
Expect to pay £169.95
