Norrona Bitihorn Gore-Tex Active Shell
Good lightweight jacket.

Bomb proof protection and super lightweight = a great rain jacket. Not all that breathable but the bottom line is that no good rain jacket will be. If its any more breathable you will get wet.
Pros: light, waterproof, nice look. Cons: expensive, breathability is questionable in high-output activities - I have done trail runs in this jacket under rain at about +13C and my hands were quite wet with sweat. Underarm vents only help the torso ventilation, had to fully unzip them, and to partly unzip the chest zip to reduce heat and increase ventilation. Perhaps, it is going to perform better at lower temperatures and when trekking. In a month I am going to the mountains and will update the review.
