Good enough

My girlfriend bought this for me around 35$. Ive told her once and I tell her all the time DONT BUY ME GEAR! And this Jacket is a perfect example.

My experience with this jacket so far is good enough for going around town and being close to a home base; work, home what have you. Why? Because it wets through fairly fast, the hood is huge, and the neck line fully zipped is horrible.

On the pro side it did keep me dry and warm. But in an extended hike or being outside for long periods of time this jacket does not cut it. Fresh out of the packaging in some spots it wetted through.

The neck line for this jacket is almost a deal breaker even for 35$. It comes up to the mid point of the neck, I personally hate anything that dosent reach the chin. It chafes the heck out of me and its annoying to have something around that area.

I didnt want to hurt her feelings but I would of rather had her save the 35$ and put it toward something useable, I would have pitched in the rest. Cheap gear is not a good idea at any time. If she paid pull price I would of flipped out and called Sierra Designs to let them have it. This is my first garment from them and im not impressed at all. I think its a good deal at 35$ but anymore and I would of have her return it.

Not bad, not great

Pros:
-Great bargain on SAC
-Waterproof, with a nice soft lining.

Cons:
-At full price, there are far better options available
-Doesn't pack into its own pocket, and packs down too big
-The lining makes it too warm for summer use for me.

Problems with seams

I ordered a couple of different sizes and colors at the same time. Unfortunately, all of the jackets had problems with the seams where the stitching did not line up. One had the problem on the shoulder, another on the hood, and I can't recall where else. All in all, they were sharp looking jackets, but for something that was supposed to be rain gear, I was skeptical that it would keep me dry. Rather then take a chance, I just returned all the jackets.

Made rain enjoyable

I used to hate rain. Now I it's definitely bearable with this awesome jacket. It's comfortable and does work in the rain. The light fleece inside also makes it warm for those chilly rainy spring days. The only drawback is the hood is massive, seriously Chewbecca does not even need this large of a hood. But it does come with cinches which makes bearable. Otherwise a bomb jacket, with sweet features like stuff sack.

Rain Rain rain-proof

Great Jacket--the rain/snow beads right off. The interior lining is super nice for those fall and spring days that are just a bit nippy.

One design flaw--huge hood. Fits over a helmet for sure, but when biking or doing anything where it could catch the wind, it will. Cinching it down can work though

huge hood!!!!

i ordered this jacket cuz it was un steep and cheap for $39. i thought it would be perfect for what i was looking for but wow, the hood was so big i could wrap it over the front of my face and touch my chest with the bill. i returned it for that reason. i am still looking for a good rain jacket with a hood that isnt rediculously huge. if anyone knows of a jacket that would work for me, please let me know. :)

Did you at least try the 3 different adjustment cords?
It is huge but you can cinch it down quite a bit.

Wow that meatfork guy sounds kinda like a jerk......sorry I was just amazed at how the hood cinched down. With a hat with a bill the hood is pretty manageable.

Great Shell

Crumples up really small, and with the lining, is actually pretty warm too (considering it's weight) holds up pretty well in the rain, but will leak eventually (leaked after a couple hours of frisbee golf in the rain)

Definitely a great "throw in the car in case of rain" type jacket.

That is exactly what this is. Couldnt have said it better.

As for the claims of "waterproof" and "breathable", is it really? Maybe only water resistant?

Responded on

The fabric is waterproof and breathable. The seams are all completely taped. This is basically the Hurricane(http://www.backcountry.com/sierra-designs-hurricane-jacket-mens)with a light weight fleece lining.

what is the lining?

Sweet Shoulder Season Jacket

The light weight fleece tricot lining adds just enough warmth for those early spring or late fall days. It comes with it's own fleece tricot lined stuff sack that doubles as a pillow... great for travel when you don't want to pack a bulky insulated parka.

Es una buena chaqueta, hecha con excelentes materiales que se amoldan a distintas condicines climáticas. Mandé a comprar esta Jacket por internet, vivo en Costa Rica y me pareció genial el estilo y todas las ventajas que tiene esta Jacket. Lamentablemente recibí una jacket con dos zippers malos por lo cual me siento muy decepcionada y molesta ya que no recibí un producto de calidad. No comprendo porqué si pago por calidad, recibo una chaqueta con desperfectos de fábrica.
