Quality Rain Jacket

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

If you are looking for a quality rain jacket then I suggest look no further. I have had mine for a couple of years now and have seen no signs of wear. It still sheds the rain like it should too. I use it fishing, backpacking, camping, traveling, and even snowboarding when its nice out occasionally.

I have to say that this jacket works perfectly, 100% waterproof, breathable and light... and + a fleece jacket underneath it it keeps you warm.
Great purchase!

Great Entry Level Rain Coat

I have had this rain coat for almost three years now and I have to say that it has held up pretty well. So well that in fact, I recently gave this jacket to my girlfriend because she needed a good raincoat and I had just purchased a new one.
I use this jacket mainly as a rain coat for light backpacking and simply keeping me dry when I walked to class. I have to say that I am impressed by how long the waterproof coating has lasted on it.
As far as waterproofing goes, I have only had this jacket fail on me one time and that was when I was outside for 4+ hours and it was just raining cats and dogs, but I have to say that even then I only got wet along the zipper because the storm flaps failed.
Bottom line, this is a great entry level shell with some pretty nice features (fully taped seams, pit zips, etc.) that is well worth the price and will last for a long time.

What size should i get? im 6' and 140 lbs, i'm a distance runner and pretty lean and tall.

Responded on

Probably a small. There is a sizing chart below the price that may help in your decision.

Best Answer Responded on

If I were you, I would go with the medium. I'm 5'10" and I have a small and it fits pretty well, but its a little bit snug and does not leave a lot of room for layering.

I'm 6'0" and 155lbs what would be a good size for me if I want to layer?

Responded on

Medium.... but you are on the cusp for large for your height! I am 5'9 155 lbs to 160 lbs I wear a medium... My brother is 6'2 180lbs and he wears a large....

Great Outer Layer

I do a lot of review reading before I buy any gear. That's how I ended up with this awesome jacket. It's everything you need in a rain jacket for hiking. It's light, compressible, waterproof, and had drawstrings and straps in all the right places. I like the fact that you can stuff it into the left pocket as well. Also, won Backpacker Magazine 2011 Editors Choice for Green product (environmentally sound, not color!). They use a natural oil, not petroleum product to seal it. i would get this again!

You might be able to get away with a medium. There is a sizing chart below the price that you can check against your measurements.

I'm 5'9", about 145lbs, with 7.5% fat. I have a windwall2 in a small that fits snug. I'm not sure If I should get a small or medium. I plan to have some kind of sweater/fleece/(possible the windwall2) under this since I hear it doesn't have much insulation. Thanks!

Responded on

Hey Ian. I am 5 ft. 10 inches tall and only 5 lbs. heavier than you are. Without any doubt, I'd suggest buying the Medium Size. Small will not fit you and you will simply need to return it. Good luck!

Responded on

Thank you very much! Much appreciated! I'll get a medium then!

Im about 6' even and weigh about 180-185 lbs. Would a large be a good size for me to get? I have pretty long arms as well. I.E. I have a fleece TNF pullover that's a medium and it's sleeves barely just make it to my wrist.

Responded on

A Large should fit you much better than the medium.

I am 5' 9'' with a decent build. I have a 20% body fat so I am not skinny but I also am not wide. Should I get a medium or a large? I also want it to fit snugly over a sweatshirt or a fleece.

Why are the inside pockets open at the bottom? Small objects can fall out.

Responded on

I agree, but I don't think that they were designed to be additional pockets on the inside.

Great Jacket - would recommend

Im 6 foot 2, 205 and the XL fits great....has enough room to layer and has great breathability. Used in a few small rain showers and it held up great. Cant wait to see how it holds up in a heavier rain.

Nice Rain Jacket

Typical rain jacket I suppose, nothing too fancy. Has some nice underarm zipper vents for those humid days that it decides to rain all day. Breathable fabric and a adjustable hood.
