Craghoppers Creevey Jacket.

This is a really versatile jacket, which can be worn in many differing conditions.  PWW undertook a field trial with walks from 5 to 15 miles, covering around 50 miles in total. This was across Hills, Fells, and Trails.

Main Features:

Wind resistance – The fabric blocks wind from penetrating the garment, greatly reducing the effects of wind chill.

Waterproof – Waterproof fabric provides a moisture barrier for guaranteed dryness.

Breathable – Lightweight fabrics that help regulate body temperature and keep you comfortable by allowing moisture to escape.

Field Trail Findings:

PWW undertook field trial with walks from 5 to 15 miles, covering around 50 miles in total.  This was across Hills, Fells and Trails.

The jacket was used in varying conditions:

Cold weather – as the jacket is a shell it does not offer a great deal of heat insulation, as you would expect.

Wind – the jacket performed well in windy conditions, acting as a good wind shield.

Warm – the jacket was worn with varying size mid layers, and the inner membraid performed well.  This said there was perspiration captured within the jacket.  In my opionion, the jacket is a 2-3 season jacket and could therefore benefit from pit zips.

Rain – the jacket repelled water pretty well.  There was no leakage through the material and/or zips.


Main points from the field trial:

Fit – as mentioned in the video review, the jacket has plenty of space for inner/mid-layers.  The material did not ride up when walking with a backpack.

Pockets and Zips – as seen in the video review the zips function well, and are very accessible with a backpack.  The zip pulls are easy to find and work well.

Hood/collar – the adjustment is easy to use and remains in place once set.  The hood and collar arrangement was found to work well in driving rain, with the hood peak doing its job well.

Cuffs – the design of the cuffs is very good, with them being slightly longer over part of the wrist.  The Velcro is easy to adjust and stays in place, once set.

Overall findings – the jacket performed well in the field.  It is a good versatile 2-3 season jacket, and lightweight, should you need to carry it in your pack.

Possible areas for improvement – the tie around the hem of the jacket has a single toggle adjustment, this can lead to having a longer cord which can get caught when walking.  Having a pull on both hips would be better.  That said, this is a very minor point.
