Lightweight, waterproof & super breathableBought the Mountain Equipment Supercell for a walking jacket in the warmer, wetter months and now the weather is warming up I\'ve been out and am very happy with it\'s performance! Great with a pack and has a longer cut so when the rain is horizontal you\'re still protected! Great jacket worth every penny.

Incredibly warmI bought a pair for my girlfriend after owning my own pair for over a year. I use them skiing, hiking and daily use commuting to work. They are very warm, snug and hardwearing. They are not waterproof (but they aren\'t designed to be - in my experience waterproof gloves never really are) but so far my hands haven\'t been wet even in downpours and they allow your hands to breathe nicely. Good value too. My only gripe is the women\'s medium seems to be the same size as a man\'s medium (so why bother having man\'s and women\'s versions?).
