The StormHood is Helmet compatible so can be pulled over a helmet in poor weather but is also shaped to allow for maximum visibility.

It’s a great jacket to have in your pack for when the temperature drops and the weather is on the change. The Tenquille is ideal for trekking and walking in the hills and mountains providing both comfort and protection.
