I am very pleased with my Alpine Equaliser. I bought it as a slightly heavier and warmer wind jacket than my Dynamo Via jacket. I wore it almost daily for three consecutive weeks climbing Island Peak via Everest base camp. It performed very well, cutting out the wind higher up, helping to keep the warmth in and the early morning chill out lower down the valley. It's not a "boil in the bag" 100% wind proof jacket but has been more than adequate for me. The fleece lined hood often negated the need for a hat as well. My jacket is Zanskar blue, bit of an odd colour but the best (only) alternative to black or dark colours It looks a little dirty even when it's clean! I've not worn it in rain, yet.

Very , very good. Great grid fleece liner gives more than enough snuggle factor to the jacket, added to the excellent windproof and water repellant outer. I'm not sure about the athletic cut-I had to size up from my normal large as the arms were too short and it was way too tight round my shoulders, but the xl fits fine, if a wee bit loose round the waist. A proper softshell for all year use.
