Great jacket for rain, very packable

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use my Rain Shadow for around the city when it is raining, and when I need a shell for spring skiing. It is very durable, and something that I'll stuff in my backpack in case there is weather. I still think that Gore-Tex is tops when it comes to heavy weather, while the H2NO is solid for every other day (and good value). Pit zips are a key feature too for venting. I wear a medium (as I layer underneath), but could probably rock a small if I used this only for non winter activities (am 5ft 7in, and 140lbs).
