CENTURION REVIEW/ WHY THIS PRODUCT?
When the conditions leave you wondering whether to wear long or short sleeves or when you are simply headed on a long run and want to pack light without compromising on protection, this is the answer. As this jacket isn't a waterproof it might be overlooked by many as superflous to requirements. The beauty of it is that it weighs just 70g and can quickly be removed and stashed in any waist belt/ vest/ pack pocket, however full. It even compresses small enough to fit in the pocket of a UD Fastdraw handheld. This is the no nonsense answer to that eternal struggle over how many layers to head out of the door with.
