Tougher than you'd think
This jacket is perfect for the weight conscious but has made it through salt water kayak tours international travel and more than a couple ski tours. It doesn't breath as well as the three layer fabrics but I have had one for the past few years and it is still waterproof and untorn! It's so light and compresses so small that there is no excuse not to have your rain protection with you. It makes a great 'just in case' piece or can be a go to outer layer when every ounce counts.
