The Mountain Equipment Zeno Jacket is an ideal choice for those requiring a lightweight waterproof that is packable yet still well featured enough should you be in need of its protection. Constructed from a 2.5 layer outer of Mountain Equipment's own waterproof coating, Drilite. Drilite is described as a 'Hydrophilic, Monolithic Polyurethane Membrane', essentially this is a layer of non-porous polyurethane that is thin enough to allow water vapour to pass through its molecular structure. Thus making the fabric windproof, waterproof and breathable.
It has a helmet compatible Mountain Hood that is fully adjustable so if you need protection the Zeno has it covered. YKK pit zips provide immediate and effective temperature regulation when working, essential when time is a luxury that you can't afford. The fit is Alpine with articulated and pre shaped sleeves, providing unrestricted freedom of movement. The YKK zip features an external and internal storm flap providing maximum foul weather protection. Being Alpine, there are just two zipped pockets, but these have dual use as with the pocket bags being mesh lined they can be used as an extra form of ventilation. Ideal when your really pushing it and have to make a dash to catch the last bin down to escape.

Excellent jacket, extremely light. More than warm enough with a fleece due to it being windproof. The under-arm zipped vents are great when the going gets energetic.
I picked this jacket after searching endlessly on the reviews of various makes. This one was recommended by a friend. It also needed to be very light. It has lots of good features too. It has yet to be tested in heavy rain so hoping that will be a success but otherwise it fits the bill perfectly.
