Spring is on its way but the rain still falls and the wind still blows (this is Britain don’t forget). The team at #Snugpak have sent me down the #Torrent Waterproof Jacket to review and test on my travels.
Having been a Snugpak user for many years, my go-to winter warmer is the Snugpak SJ9 which is super toasty and an absolute beast of a jacket. However, in the warmer months, it’s a little heavy for traipsing around the back lanes. So, the Torrent is the perfect medium weight jacket for my day-to-day filming.
Snugpak also produces some great outdoor gear which I will be hopefully testing throughout the spring/summer months, once this annoying Coronavirus blows over.
I’d highly recommend the Snugpak Torrent jacket, mainly because of the body shape, material and not to mention the awesome attention to detail. These products are made in the UK and I’m proud to support a UK manufacturer.
