I fell for the Keb eco shell and bought from amazon and a good price. However, it was replaced at it leaked through the pockets badly. To cut a long story short I had 3 of these jackets and were all returned with the same problem. I am now waiting for a full refund. I have bought an Arcteryx Beta AR which is very waterproof but wonder if I should have considered a Paramo Alta iiiI am looking at replacing my hard shell and insulated jacket in the near future and am undecided which to go for.
My choices that I am looking at are the Arcteryx Alpha AR/SV or the Fjallraven Keb Eco shell for the hard shell and the Arcteryx Cerium Hoody LT/AR as the insulation layer.
I appreciate that I have to try these on which could change my opinion but would like to know if others have used either jackets and their opinions of them.
The main areas of use would be Wales and the Lake District but also with a possible trip to Lap Land next Christmas.
Thanks for your thoughts.
