A bit on the heavy side for a Mountain Jacket…

In the process of looking at jackets for the winter, I happened to have a look at the Keela range. I am impressed with the unfussy way in which they present and sell their garments ie simple designs for reasonable prices. The Cumulus Pro Mountain Jacket caught my eye but alas it might be a bit heavy for me…

    I’ve been using a Keela Odin for about four years although I am mainly cycling and low level walking.
    The zip pull broke last year so I repaired it with fuse wire and bought a new Odin as spare. Not needed the new one yet.
    I’ve been pleased with its quality. As the rep said to me at the Cycle Show: “It’s designed to beat Scottish weather so it will work anywhere”, and it has.

      Although the post was a little tongue in cheek, I do actually like Keela products. I have some trousers by them and they arent fancy, they just work.
      They may be slightly retro and slightly heavier than the leading jackets out there but as you say they can be used in real Scottish weather conditions

  2. Dave, is that 600kg weight in medium or large? I wonder how much it weighs in XXL ๐Ÿ™‚
