ARC'TERYX NORVAN

price: £280
weight: 215g

The Norvan marries Gore-Tex Active fabric with a beautiful cut, to create a really excellent jacket. It’s clean looking, with underarm vents, subtle reflective details and an inside zipped pocket. The materials, cut, finish and build-quality may justify the price, but it is expensive. To make it perfect the hood could adjust, to offer more protection. 

verdict

A pricey but very high-quality four-season running jacket.
