Midge Jacket Review: Staff members Elan and Norman have them extensively in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. After he paddled the Caledonian Canal Norman stated: Life was made bearable by this great, essential bit of kit. Even with the hood on I could sit on the lochside in the evening and drink a glass of red wine through the mesh". Norman favoured wearing the jacket with a peaked / baseball cap underneath it.
