The Unnuk has the same attention to detail as the Tavani and has similar styling, such as the exposed seams. It has weatherproofed zippers, both front and back. The hood isn’t as large as the Tavani, however, so this is clearly a jacket to be worn around town and for short jaunts into the woods, and not suitable for skiing (you’d never get a helmet under the hood).
I wore it everyday for several months during the English winter. It’s weatherproofing is extremely good against the rain and it has a nice, faux fur interior to keep you warm. This makes it too hot for summer but perfect on a cold and blustery day. That said, it does have vents in the armpit to prevent you from overheating.
I remained dry throughout some very heavy rains but didn’t remain outside for more than an hour. There aren’t any wrist tighteners (like there are on the Tavani), so this isn’t meant to be used for prolong periods of sport or work out in the rain.
Like the Tavani, it is very minimalist. There are only three pockets (all on the outside, none on the inside). Two are open and convenient for shielding your hands, and that last pocket is a small zippered one on the chest.
We purchased the Dark Charcoal version (featured here) and it comes in both purple and olive colours.
The exterior fabric is smooth like vinyl but has an ever-so-slight rubberised feel to it, which is nice when you sling an over the shoulder bag, because the material doesn’t let the strap slide around too much.
Overall, I was extremely satisfied with the durability, warmth and styling of this jacket. It felt loose enough not to be uncomfortable but snug and secure at the same time. Ready to weather any urban adventure.
