Nima (“nee-ma”) is a Tibetan name meaning ‘the sun’. But, as we all know, the sun doesn’t always shine – and even when it does, if you’re heading into the great outdoors, it’s always a good idea to take a waterproof jacket, just in case. But you don’t want a heavy and bulky shell that’s going to be awkward to carry or take up most of the space in your daysack. Weighing in at under 300g, this jacket from Sherpa is the ideal solution. Light and packable, it offers ample rain protection when called upon, with a 2.5-layer waterproof-breathable fabric made from recycled polyester, plus an adjustable hood and taped seams. The double-ripstop shell offers impressive durability, and the jacket has plenty of ventilation options too, including twin mesh-lined hand pockets and under-arm pit zips.
