Jack Wolfskin have a great reputation of delivering great products and well worth their price. I have to say that this is the case for the Thermic One Jacket.
I first went out on a crisp winters morning with my dogs wearing just the jacket over a t-shirt. In such a lightweight jacket – at only 245g - I honestly thought I would be cold but the jacket held my heat and I was toasty warm. This jacket is super lightweight which packs down into its own carry bag which is really handy.
The jacket is insulated with MICROGUARD SUPERLOFT -a synthetic fibre that feels like down and delivers great warmth-to-weight performance. The fill also has good lofting capability, which makes the jacket very comfortable to wear. The outer is of water-resistant Stormlock ripstop fabric, which makes it almost completely windproof, and in very wet conditions you can team it with your hardshell, to be fully weatherproof.
