- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Chose this brand/model after shortlisting at least 10. Wanted a short waterproof jacket that would cover the seat, have a hood, be lightweight, and if possible come in beautiful colours. (I love walking through the rain with no umbrella, so excellent quality is a must.) Very impressed with the jacket and Backcountry service. Lowest online price right now for exactly the colour I wanted, super-fast shipping & clear checkout. The jacket is wonderful - extremely lightweight but with a thick, durable waterproof layer, adjustable hood that stays where it's supposed to, and big pockets that also close with velcro. Worked great in torrential rain. The colour is exactly as pictured on the website; very visible on cloudy rainy days and very refined. A+++ product + Backcountry.
