Rain, sleet, slush, and hail.
Once monsoon season rolls around, you can pretty much expect a smorgasbord of moisture in a myriad of forms, so don't leave home without your Under Armour Men's Surge Jacket. Its 2.5-layer shell with fully taped seams puts the hurt on any H2O that might otherwise creep through, while the zippered underarm vents let any built-up vapor quickly escape, so you stay cool and dry. Lock the hood down tight when the rains start to fall at a slant, then cinch the hem and cuffs closed to form a water-tight seal to shield yourself from whatever form of precip you might be dealing with.

Middle Ground Coat with Nice Features
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
This is the first bit of UA outdoor kit I've purchased, and it probably won't be the last. This is neither ultra-light, nor is it really heavy duty enough to count as a hard shell, but it's a nice middle ground. The magnetic zipper feature is actually way nicer than I expected. Rather than having to alight the two zipper halves, they magnet snap together, making one handing the zipper relatively easy. It's just something nice that isn't make or break but is cool.
Single adjust hood is snug, and in the limited rain I've exposed this to, it has shed water without issue. The lining seems durable as does the material, but obviously I'll have to see how it holds up. The cuffs, under-arm zippers, pockets, and front zipper are all of good quality and overall the fit and finish on the jacket reflects a reassuring level of quality for a brand which in my mind is associated with overcharging on fashion relative to features. As a plus, I like the color and wavy pattern.
what does this jacket weigh and is it pack-able?
