Best Ultra Light Rain Jacket

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I am an OCD researcher when it comes to gear. I settled on this jacket over the Arc'teryx Alpha SL, Marmot Nano, and Stoic Vaporshell. This was the only jacket thas was under a pound, had pit zips, and pockets. The Stoic has no pockets or pit zips, the Arc'teryx has pockets but no pit zips, and the Nano also has no pit zips.

I have recently tested it on a 4 day trek around Catalina Island, and it did awesome! The fabric is super breathable which was almost a down fall. We had super high winds and this is definitely not a wind stopper, but it will keep you dry.

Overall, for the price and features, you can't beat it!
