We test the Keela Prosport Adv to see just how good this well-designed jacket for all-round mountain use really performs on the mountain

Great value, user-friendly loose fit
No powder skirt

The Prosport Adv jacket uses Keela's 'System Dual Protection' to repel the weather, and as such it's just as well suited to foul conditions in the British hills as it is to winter in the Alps.

The outer fabric features a breathable membrane teamed with a mesh lining that has a high-wicking hydrophilic membrane laminated to it - these two layers of fabric create an 'air gap' providing a natural thermal barrier, protecting against heat loss and reducing the need for bulky layers - The resulting relatively light and loose feel of the Prosport is one of its great features.

Meanwhile the hydrophilic membrane rapidly transports moisture away from the body, keeping you dry and comfortable.

Keela have then incorporated all the major features you need in an outdoor jacket - that it's not ski specific can be seen by the lack of a powder skirt, but that's not an entirely essential feature unless you spend all your time wiping out.

What you get, then, is a fully-adjustable hood with great peripheral vision, and a high, microfleece lined collar, beneath which sit a zipped internal pocket (big enough for an OS map, incidentally), a small zipped chest pocket and two generously sized zipped hand pockets. There are also pit zips, Velcro adjustable cuffs and an adjustable hem.

All in all the Propsport Adv is a great value, rugged and versatile jacket that you could use year-round in the hills at home and abroad.
