Tested in Patagonia

    I just got back from a trip to Patagonia where I climbed a couple of volcanoes using the GoLite Jacket and have pros and cons:
    Pros-
    Lightweight, great outer-shell
    Good price
    Nice fit, design is attractive
    Cons-
    The zipper was finicky
    Hood was too small to fit over my helmet

    Overall, I'm glad I bought it. Beware of the pants however because they have no pockets or zippers to let you get into under-layers.

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

    I love this Jacket , it's my go to Rain Jacket when going to Red Rocks in the Summer , it's in my Back Pack when I commute to work in the Summer and it is my Ski Shell in Spring and Fall. I have been very impressed with the quality.

    It's okay

      I had to return this jacket for a number of reasons. It's cut very small in the arm so you have limited mobility. The hand warmer pockets are too low down so you cannot access them with a hip belt on. The chest pocket is way too small to stow snacks. The neck closure is too tight when wearing layers and doesn't come up high enough to provide adequate storm protection. I did like a couple of features: the berry color and the light weight of the jacket on the whole. With some modifications this does have the potential to be a great jacket!
