The Keela Falkland Jacket is a well-made single layer of Ventile cotton jacket with Keela’s ADS laminate liner giving an added layer of protection. This means the jacket is lighter in weight but still offers good weather protection and moisture wicking. Being made of cotton the jacket is quieter than a nylon/ Gore-Tex . In the conditions that I have used the jacket in it has kept me nice and dry and the wind out. The jacket has eight pockets one behind the storm flap takes an OS map with no problem. There are two zipped fleece lined hand warmer pockets behind the front pockets and two slash pockets on the chest. These have a press stud tab that can be used to hold open the flap on the main pockets. There is also an inside Velcro secured poacher style pocket. The jacket has waist and hem elastic draw cords.
The hood is detachable with and secured with press studs this has a good sized wired peak and volume adjuster on the back of the hood and secured elastic draw cord. The hood gives good vision when closed down and moves well with your head. The storm flap is secured with press studs this covers a two way zip. The jacket can also have keelas orkney fleece zipped in it. The cuffs also have them for adjustment.
This is a good jacket if you are looking for a Ventile jacket or as an alternative to the standard Gore-Tex jacket .
