When you want to be active during cold weather, it can be difficult to find the perfect balance between keeping warm without big bulky clothing restricting your movements. The Musto Snug could be the perfect answer to this problem.
The Snug is made from recycled materials to help you do your bit for the environment; the outer is made from a 100% nylon, ripstop fabric with a down proof coating, and the inside features a 100% nylon lining and is filled with that 133 g/m² PrimaLoft Black Eco Insulation. This super lightweight down was first designed for the US military - it is permanently water resistant and retains its insulating properties and light weight even when wet. It has a thermal efficiency equal to goose down and is ultra-breathable, keeping you ventilated throughout your adventure.
The Snug has a DWR treatment (Durable Water Repellent) that is applied to all Musto waterproofs. The treatment actively repels rain water and causes it to bead on the jackets and run off rather than soaking into the material. As well as being waterproof, the Musto Snug is wind resistant, with tight Lycra bound hems and cuffs to stop any drafts sneaking in. There is also a fabric cover over the top of the zip for comfort, stopping the cold metal touching your skin and building up condensation. The Snug features two zipped side pockets with long pulls that can be easily grabbed with a gloved hand, and the high collar offers added protection against the elements without restricting your vision.
The Snug’s name is quite appropriate, to the point that I think the line runs on the small side, so bare that in mind when ordering your size. I found that the jacket rides up a little, but again, this could be due to it being too small. My other complaint is that I don’t like the feel of the material - it feels quite plastic and cheap to touch, although in actuality it performs very well, so don’t let this put you off.
The Snug is a great jacket if you are looking for something ultra-lightweight as well as ultra-protective to allow you to get on with your outdoor adventures. RRP £150
