Women’s Talus Jacket
The perfect mid or outer layer. The Talus Jacket features a Flylite Ultra fabric with added Cordura ripstop for strength without weight. A combination of 60gsm Primaloft Gold insulation for warmth, and stretchy fleece softshell side panels for increased ease of movement, makes the Talus Jacket a great core item for all year round use. It also features a technical fixed hood and malleable peak.
It’s lightweight fill means it’s suitable for all year round use whether as an extra thermal layer in your pack for chilly summer summits to frosty winter days. It’s water resistant and windproof.
Lower Primaloft insulation in the arms means protection for your body without losing arm movement
Warmth without Weight
Primaloft insulation gives a high level of warmth, without having to carry around lots of extra weight
Warm while Wet
Unlike down, the unique Primaloft insulation keeps working even when wet!
I really like this jacket and I especially adore the colour! It adds warmth without bulk and protects against rain showers too. On long hikes I tend to get quite warm, so for spring and autumn hikes a lighter jacket like this is perfect for adding enough warmth but without making me overheat.
Although snug on the hips, I do like the fit of this jacket and the way it looks on. The lack of bulk means that on cooler summer walks I’ve found this jacket is ideal. If you like to layer and already have a fully waterproof outer that you like, then the Talus is great for use as a mid-layer in very cold weather.
Camping with Style
My thoughts: Keela Talus Primaloft jacket
The fit is really nice. I have the women’s UK10 and I would say it is a generous fit but it’s not too neat, nor too loose.The stretchy section down the sides and under the arms provides a great freedom of movement.It’s a great design with the weightier Primaloft insulation where you need it, in the body and arms, while other areas have lighter weight fabric. This means the jacket is warm but no heavier than it needs to be.I have worn the jacket in different temperatures – deliberately wearing it on colder evenings – and I like the warmth to weight ratio.
Primaloft insulation is also synthetic so it works to keep you warm even when its wet. Note: The water resistant treatment will keep out light rain but heavy Scottish style rain will soak through. Even when this happens, synthetic fill will keep you warm-isa, while down gets soaked through and cold.
The outer fabric looks and feels robust. It’s quite shiny so some people might not be so keen on the look but I really like it. The look is smart but practical. I have the purple jacket and it’s a great colour.
Other nice features include the fleecy inner to the stretch fabric sides. These are soft and cosy. The hand pockets also have fleece inners, too. This feels great against bare skin and also makes the pockets feel cosier when it’s chillier.
The hood is great for extra warmth and is easily adjustable. I like the bendy (malleable) peak.
The features list the zip as two way but this is not the case with my jacket. That is odd.
This is a jacket that I will wear when I’m out and about, taking the dog for a walk or going to the pub, as well as an item for packing in my walking rucksack.
