Beta SL jacket
Here is a jacket that weighs next to nothing and lets you laugh at the rain. Made out of Gore-tex paclite material, it sheds rain with ease and still breathes pretty well. The sleeves are plenty long enough and the hood is easily adjustable. It is not large enough to wear over a helmet, but I don't expect to wear such a light coat if I need my ski helmet on. The pockets are placed lower on the jacket so it is easy rest you hands in them. This jacket is my around town rain jacket and my just in case it rains jacket because it is so easy to throw in the pack. I hardly know I am wearing a jacket it is so light. This is the perfect jacket for hikes spring to fall time. I belong to a group that gets to test clothing and this is one of the favorite items I have tested so far.
