this July i went on a 28 day backpacking expedition in the Talkeetna mountains in Alaska. after about 4 days of hiking up a stream with no rain we got high up in the mountains and thats where this jacket got put to the test! for the rest of the trip i was constantly wearing this jacket as a rain and wind layer.
this jacket preformed great under every condition Alaska thew at it. my favorite part about this jacket is the ventilation zippers which dont have any webbing so if your hands get so cold u cant even hold the map u can just slip your hands in to get warmed up. something else i love about this jacket is its breath ability. the backpackers rule is usually to hike in a base layer or mid layer even when is raining. but in Alaska if you hike in a t-shirt and shorts while its raining chances are the temp is less then 40 degrees and your guna get hypodermic fast. with this jacket all u need to do is ware a light weight shirt under it and your good to go for hours of physical and mental exertion. i am also a skiing fanatic so this season i am excited to test this jacket out on the hill.
