Price as reviewed:

£89.99

At just under £90 for this Bontrager winter jacket, we weren’t, if we are honest, expecting a huge amount.

We are happy to say that we were shocked.

The softshell fabric may lack the total elasticity of more expensive items, but it offers exceptional rain resistance and you simply cannot ignore the price.

Verdict

We'd prefer a split in the capacious rear pocket to control heavier winter loads and we'd prefer a shorter front to stop the waving of the front panel when down on the drops but, to be fair, this is really splitting hairs.
