The jacket is designed to be highly waterproof against medium to heavy showers, a large skirt and collar help to protect the hips and thighs as well as the neck area from wind and blown water droplets.
Cuffs close with velcro hook and loop to help seal off the arms against water, the jacket closes with a central two-way chunky zip and also has an extra zip to allow easy reaching of contents inside jacket or shirt pockets without opening the whole front.
The Zip is covered by two wind and storm baffles which Velcro over each other, the bottom of skirt has elasticated shock cord and toggle adjustment to bring this area close to the body and prevent wind from driving up from below.
