Gear Question

I'm looking for an absolute BOMBproof shell...

Posted on

I'm looking for an absolute BOMBproof shell that can be very cool on hot humid days. I do field work regularly in dense undergrowth and am still trying to find the perfect jacket that keeps me as cool as possible but will also live up to tons of abuse. Any recommendations? Is this jacket good in really hot jungle-comparable weather?

I don't own this jacket specifically, but it again seems to have specs that will make it too much for what you're looking for. I do however have the Westcomb Mirage, and that's another jacket that would do the job for you really well. Pretty much anything in eVent is going to be a great choice.

I own this exact shell in the yellow and I would highly recommend this as it is amazing! The features with the draw strings in the hood and waist are great. Also nice to have large pips in the arm pits for when you get worked up. Nothing better than buying a coat that supports Canadian designers, sewers and marketing instead of all the shit from slave factories in Asia. We need more Great Canadian apparel manufacturing!
