Default Altura Phase 300 v Altura Nevis v Gill Exodus

All of the jackets on the subject line look pretty good to me, all are
around 50 at the moment. Who has experience of any of them ? Can any be
recommended ?

I have an Altura Nevis. It's a good jacket - waterproof but easy to
wear, with good armpit zips, nice long tail, nice detailing. It's not
one of these ultra light ultra packable things - I'd believe it will
pack into it's own back pocket, but it's back pocket is pretty large.
It certainly doesn't take up too much room in my bar bag. I've had it a
year and it's good as new; it seems quite durable. I'd buy another.

My Nevis does the same thing. I can't work out how though (never been

at this time of year though - I went out in mine today and was
roasted due to the fact that it doesn't let any wind through.


No, but if I can get a 100 jacket for 50[*] at this time of year it is
worth buying it and putting it away for next year.
[*] of the three I mentioned only the Nevis has been mentioned in replies
and this is the only one not discounted ATM !

I have a Phase 400 which is a much lighter jacket than my partners Nevis
and I'm very pleased with it. It's the sort of waterproof I can keep on
all day when the temps below 10 deg C and it's raining on and off. Only
fault is that I would have prefered a proper pocket to the mesh ones the
contents of which get sweaty.

Don't know if it's anything like the 300 though!

No but the others I mentioned were substantially (for me anyway) more than
50 and are now available for around 50.
