First-look

Rohan very kindly sent in the Fuse jacket for me to test on my hikes. I haven’t taken it for many miles just yet, so here are my first impressions of the jacket.

 

What are your first impressions?

Yet another high-quality jacket from Rohan. Just like the Helix jacket and Expedition shirt, the Fuse jacket has a superb build quality, immaculate stitching and a very beautiful choice of materials. It’s very comfortable to wear and is a very good fit in small for my 37″ chest and 18″ torso. It’s highly breathable and they’ve coated it with their durable water repellency finish which is a nice touch. It by no means is waterproof and shouldn’t be used as a shell. While not warm enough to replace my Patagonia Micropuff hoodie It does work very well as an active mid-layer because it’s so light and packable when compared to something like a fleece top.

 

Where will you take it first?

I’m going to take it with me on the West Highland Way and Cape Wrath Trail trip coming up soon and use it as an extra layer as well as my Micropuff to see how well it copes with some cold and windy weather. Watch this space.
