Craghoppers versatile Dunoon jacket is a fresh take on the classic 3-in-1 with a more technical approach to both layers. We love how the jacket looks with a long hem, slim cut and subtle detailing making it equally at home on a country walk as it is around town. It isn't just a great looker though as both the outer shell layer and inner insulating layer are high performing. The outer boasts 8,000mm waterproofing and 10,000g/m2/24hrs breathability, if that leaves you scratching your head then we can testify that in real world use it keeps you dry and leaves you feeling fresh rather than clammy.
Despite great waterproofing the outer is actually a cotton/polyester blend which makes it soft to the touch and comfortably supple as opposed to crinkly, plasticky waterproofs that you might wear on a proper hike.
We use this jacket as a genuine 3-in-1 (which is where so many other 3-in-1 jackets fail) when the weather demands a warm layer but there's no rain forecast we opt for the stylish padded inner which has its own set of pockets and outerwear detailing. We've also used the shell on its own in warm wet weather and paired with the inner for cold wet days so this jacket really is as versatile as it sounds.
The outer shell has two storm flap hand pockets as well as zipped side security pockets which are subtly integrated into the fabric. Craghoppers, being primarily a travel clothing company have also thought to include an RFID shield to block potential threats of identity and card theft.
We've been wearing this jacket daily for a few months now and love it more and more every day, it's a fantastic companion to a hectic life spent commuting and dreaming of the weekends during the week and exploring the wonders of the world on your days off.
We think it's worth the investment and if you're worried about durability don't be, the Dunoon is backed by Craghoppers excellent lifetime guarantee.
