Overall Score
Tough looks and build quality for urban and mountain adventures
The ‘cork’ print on the inside of the hood looks a bit clumsy

Heavily detailed with chunky picture buttons, leather patch logos and a soft ‘Magic’ fur hood rim (removable), the Hudson is definitely a coat for those who like logos. That said, we reckon the Hudson manages to carry it off – although perhaps the ‘cork’ pattern hood is a stylistic stretch too far…

Made from 63 percent recycled polyester, with a Dry Play membrane that is waterproof to 10,000mm and breathable to 10,000g/m2/24hrs. Although this compares to 20k/20k waterproofing and breathability on genuinely high-performance outdoor garments, this is perfectly adequate for this jacket’s purposes.

Another compromise to hardcore mountain use comes with the pocket closures, which are all with buttons, not zips. So while the inclusion of a detachable snow skirt and draught-excluding cuffs is commendable, we reckon you’re bound to ship a few pocket loads of the white stuff if you’re prone to the odd fall on the slopes.

Other nice features include a ski-pass sleeve pocket, hand pockets behind the buttoned bottom pockets and two side-accessed chest pockets.

All round, a nicely styled, warm and comfortable coat, with moderate mountain performance.
