Young at heart. Wise at brain.

When your friend sent out the packing list for your upcoming backpacking trip, she didn't include a rain jacket because, 'it's just an overnighter.' But, you always were the wise one of the group, so you decided to bring along your Sierra Designs Women's Hurricane Jacket anyway. Now, your friend is a soggy mess and you're enjoying a lovely stroll through the freshly washed woods.

  • Hurricane 2L hardshell with DWR finish teams up with fully taped PVC-free seams to seal out moisture so you stay dry when the deluge starts
  • Underarm vents get rid of the moist, overheated air that can build up when you work up a sweat
  • Helmet-compatible hood shields your head from the rain
  • Compressible design lets you stuff this whole jacket into its stuff sack for easy packing
  • Adjustable cuffs stops cold air from blowing up your sleeves

Wouldn't stand up to a hurricane

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Mediocre rain jacket, which is reflected in its price. Good for Utah's occasional rains, but doesn't stand up as well in the Pacific northwest (soaked through some and was damp). Still going to give it 3 stars though because of price and I like its stuff sack. I also sized up so that I could put it over sweatshirts/light jackets for a colder rain.

I bought this jacket a couple months ago, since I live in Northern California and am in the rain a lot. I love to hike, run, and ride my bike. In addition, I am outside doing fieldwork every single day. I definitely needed something to keep me dry.

This jacket has been very disappointing; the past 4-5 time I have worn it, rain has somehow gotten in. All of my zippers were shut, the hood cinched, yet my shirt underneath gets soaking wet. I almost seems as if the fabric itself is not waterproof.

Responded on

Nearly all WP material (even Gore-Tex) restricts breathe-ability to an extent. Sweat builds up even if you're casually strolling. So as sweat builds, the inside of these WP garments get damp. Some WP material is more effective than others as pushing sweat through the fabric, but they can't sacrifice WP performance for it. Otherwise, you have a WR jacket. And if you are active in your jacket as it seems you are, you will definitely have a damp, sometimes wet feel most of the time. And it's worse if the environment is also humid. Just some thoughts.
