Salomon Drifter Mid Hoodie jacket

The new Salomon Drifter Mid Hoodie jacket offers versatility of looks and weather protection.

I am a big fan of jackets that offer two sides for different weather and warmth. One side of the Salomon Drifter Mid Hoodie protects against the wind to keep your warmer while the other is more breathable and allows more air to permeate the insulation for slightly less warmth.

l38247000-1What I like about the jacket

It’s a useful mid-layer jacket for hill walking. I wear it as a standalone jacket or underneath a waterproof jacket when it is wet or very cold.

I like that it’s lightweight; versatile for different weather; fits well; lovely colour range; nice details, such as zipped pockets, soft cuffs and colour range.

There is very little not to like about this jacket although RRP £130 is perhaps a bit much.


See for stockists.
