The Juho is a simple lightweight jacket at a reasonable price. It’s made from Gore-Tex Paclite and so isn’t as breathable as more expensive fabrics. The cut is quite slim so a larger size would be needed to wear over anything other than a thin fleece top. The hood is okay for protection and side vision but could do with a stiffer peak as strong winds can deform it. There are no chest pockets, just two lower pockets that are cut off by a hipbelt.
The fairly low cost and light weight makes the Juho a reasonable choice for lightweight backpacking and hillwalking. I’d rather have a more breathable fabric though, plus chest pockets and a stiffer hood, but for those you have to pay considerably more.
Pros: light weight, cost
Cons: hood could be stiffer, no chest pockets
