Gets The Job Done

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size


I live in a very wet, very rainy and very humid area of the US and this jacket has come in handy a number of times.

- ** The waterproofing on it is great, only place that water enters is the cuff when you have your arm on an incline. However, because it lacks GORTEX or other water barriers this jacket is probably only suitable for light to moderate rain, intermittently. Recently, and this might not be a fair test, I had the opportunity to put this jacket thru a few tropical storm surges, unfortunately, it did not hold up and keep my as dry as I would like. After about 10 – 20 minutes of constant heavy rain the jacket will saturate and you’ll get wet.

- The jacket being able to fold into it’s own breast pocket is great, very compact. I can usually toss it in a pack or just clip it on the outside for quick access, and its very lightweight so you don’t notice it on or off.

- The omni-heat is great for when the rain cools the air.

The only issue I have with it, and it's usually always an issue with wind and rain breakers, is ventilation. There is none, so if it’s a hot rain or intermittent rain in the heat then you'll start to sweat. Otherwise, great jacket for a great price.
