Solid...Not Great

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I am 5'11" 175lbs and I ordered a Large in Burnt/Red Rock. Sizing is good, enough room underneath for layers without being too bulky. Color is great, nice sharp Orange.

Wore this jacket in 15-30 degree weather with a light down jacket underneath. Snowmelt beaded up nicely and the jacket was dry. Breathability was a bit of an issue. After taking off the jacket, the down underneath was moist on the outside (in between the down and this shell).
Wish I would have looked a little closer at the design. One side zipper makes it a bit difficult on/off. A zipper on the other side would have been nice. The front pocket is not that convenient either.
For my purposes (looking good and keeping wet out) this jacket works great. I don't think I would recommend it for high aerobic activities though..

Responded on

You got condensation on between layers because the dew point (temp when your body vapor condenses into liquid) was between your down jacket and anorak. Only thing that will prevent this is wearing a vapor barrier.
