The Keela Belay Pro Jacket is a lightweight, windproof and water resistant thermal jacket with a filling of Primaloft insulation. As the name suggests, this makes an ideal belay jacket for climbing, but is equally suited to almost any outdoor activity where extra warmth is needed without it weighing you down.

With its windproof and water resistant outer, the Belay Pro Jacket can be worn as an outer layer to keep the winter chill at bay, or as a mid layer underneath a performance shell jacket in extreme weather conditions. The Velcro-adjustable cuffs, drawcord-adjustable hem and small, raised collar all help to keep the jacket tailored in order to fit underneath another garment.

A longer rear hem and fleece-lined hand-warmer pockets make welcome additions on those extra cold days, while a full-length, two-way zip allows plenty of ventilation.

The Belay Pro Jacket utilises a thermal filling of Primaloft One, a synthetic material which can more than hold its own when compared to down. Its microfibres are similar in size and shape to down, resulting in nearly equal insulating performance when dry, and even better when wet. Because its individual fibres are water repellent, Primaloft retains much of its ability to keep you warm, even when outside moisture has soaked through. Similar to the structure of down with incredible softness, Primaloft is highly compressible and easy to stuff into a rucksack or dry bag. Its resilient fibres are quick to regain their loft to provide uncompromised insulation.

  Extremely functional. I got this as an over layer for camping in cold and usually damp UK conditions. It lacks the fineries of other brands, but gets the job done. At first I didn’t find it particularly warming, and it’s not particularly lofty, but having sat around for prolonged periods around freezing, never got cold. The cut seems a bit unusual, in that for me it’s roomy on the body and quite narrow on the arms. Works well over a gilet, so no complaints. Fantastic value and would recommend.

  Great jacket, I use this as shell or fleece under my Keela waterproof jacket which is what I bought it for.

  I purchased size small as I have a 36 inch chest , the jacket is a comfortable fit and has plenty of room for a base layer and fleece and my Gore-Tex shell fits over it without being tight. side pockets are a good size, the inside pocket takes a wallet and phone. My first walk was on a windy day, temp 2 degreed Celsius, it kept me warm despite the wind chill. The next walk I wore it over a base layer and fleece with a shell outer, 0 degrees Celsius with horizontal snow but the jacket kept me very warm. worn it now a few times on very cold days and can definitely say its warm, light and comfortable.

  Very comfortable and warm jacket, much better quality than the buffalo I've had for several years. This is quickly becoming my go to jacket.

  I normally get away with a medium size in clothing but tend to have to go for large with insulated jackets. I know that sizing can vary widely between brands. The Keela Belay Pro is a slightly 'roomy' large but not overly so. Fine if you like to be able to layer up underneath it. The fleece-lined hip pockets are very spacious, but the same can't be said for the inside pocket, which at six inches by six inches, with a four and a half inch wide zip opening, is just big enough for perhaps a hankie and a small phone. Overall though, this is a warm, comfortable jacket in a relatively light weight. I've only had mine just over a week but already I have enjoyed the benefits of it on some cold and windy days. If the inside pocket had been just a couple of inches deeper, to take a decent sized smartphone, I might have been tempted to give it five stars!

  This is a great jacket. It's very comfortable and keeps you as warm as a down jacket for a fraction of the price.

  Nicely made jacket, very lightweight and warm. I use it as an insulating layer for motorcycling and it's ideal.

  Excellent quality, packs small, extremely warm, wind and rain proof. Bought as a mid-layer underneath my motorcycle jacket after reading a review in MCN. Does the job and can be worn as a jacket when off the bike too. Received a star less than max due to price. Given the price of a decent winter bike jacket this I believe is good value. I can recommend if you ride all year round.
