KEELA Ladies Storm jacket review

With plenty of outdoor adventures on the cards this winter there couldn’t have been a better time to for me to be sent the Keela Ladies Storm jacket to review. If you enjoy hiking, cycling or running then read on to find out more about this lightweight, weather-proof jacket that I think looks rather fab in vibrant orange.

About the Keela Ladies Storm jacket

This sporty jacket from Keela is all about practically. It’s light yet water and wind proof. There are four pockets that mums like me will appreciate for stowing all those shells, leaves and stones the kids pick up on walks while also safely storing your phone and keys elsewhere.

Then there’s an adjustable hood that you can whip out quickly if the weather gets really bad. It even fits over cycling helmets.

If you cycle or run there’s a handy zip up back pocket, thumb loop, adjustable cuffs and reflective piping to make you more visible. And the orange jacket that I have comes with reflective patches too.

Having banged on about the practicality of this jacket, what I think sets it apart is that it also looks great. Unlike a lot of technical waterproofs that take on a tent-like appearance, the Keela Ladies Storm has a waist. As someone who has gained a few more curves in 2020 I really appreciate this design.

Performance

I’m not going to take up mountain biking or trail running any time soon (but never say never in 2020), so I’ve been using the Keela Ladies Storm jackets on walks close to home.

It did a great job of keeping out the wind on a hike to our local beach that was being blasted by the tail end of a November storm. And it was light enough that I wasn’t a sweaty mess on the uphill hike home.

As I’ve already mentioned, I love the design and the colour. I think we all need a bit more orange in our lives this winter!
