ME Makalu waterproof Jacket

ME take a lot of care in the design and manufacture of their equipment and this was very apparent with this jacket.

An ideal jacket for Winter mountaineering and climbing, but still being versatile enough for autumn spring use.
Goretex fabric is used which is a must to keep you dry.
I have a long body and arms and the fit of this jacket was brilliant, neither the arms or back rode up when I was climbing.
A chest pocket that will hold an OS map and along with two side pockets , gave plenty of storage.

The hood was a good size, but if you re a climber try it with your helmet on as the one problem for me was it was too restrictive,.

The jacket is an athletic cut which is very functional but does depend on your shape.
I have a large upper body and smaller waist,
so the fit in the body was ideal no baggy material
but the chest was quite tight .

Overall a very good jacket light weight versatile and well made.

So although this is a brilliant jacket the fit wasn't quite right for me, particularly as I wanted a winter jacket where layers could be worn, so I had to upgrade to a
Rab Ladakh GTX which gave a better fit for my body shape

Great jacket at the right price

I have only had this jacket for just over a week so not had a chance to really test it yet but that said, it has all the features walkers/mountaineers need.
Goretex pro with heavier fabric in high abrasion areas
Deep pockets incl a Napoleon chest pocket for a map
Pit zips
Adjustable cuffs and hood with peak
A zip internal pocket for small important stuff
I have two minor issues.
1. The body is a perfect fit for me (size L). I am 5'11", with a 44 chest BUT the arms are super long. It isn't a problem once you push them up and adjust the cuffs to stop them falling down and I understand they are like this to allow for reach and movement but I was surprised just how long they are.
2. Price: I got mine at a good price for a jacket of this type with the quality this has. I now see (less than 2 weeks later) it has increased by £55!!!
At this new price I would be looking at a higher end jacket and paying a little more. Maybe mine was a clearance because of the long arms - who knows!
