    Uinta 3L Packable Rain Jacket

    Whether you're headed out for a day on the trail or a week in the mountains, the Backcountry Uinta 3L Packable Rain Jacket provides essential protection that doesn't eat up valuable space in your pack. This technical piece features a lightweight, packable design that stows easily while the sun is shining, yet boasts quality hardshell defenses to protect you if the weather changes. The 3-layer waterproof laminate and fully-sealed seams keep you dry and comfortable against driving rain, and a cinchable hem and hood defend against the creep of wind-driven moisture. While the microporous lamination offers breathable, quick-drying performance to keep your microclimate from getting muggy, should you need to lose heat in a hurry you can unzip the underarm vents to cool off quickly.

    Fit is super weird

    Familiarity:I returned this product before using it
    Fit:Runs small
    Size BoughtM
    Height5` 8"
    Weight160 lbs

    I tried this on and will be returning it without using it. The sizing and cut are super bizarre. I have a wider chest and narrower hips and am a medium in most brands (Arc'teryx medium fits me very well), so I ordered this in a M. The sleeves are very short and don't fully reach my wrists, especially with my arms raised. (I have normal length arms - +2 ape index, I think.) Meanwhile the lower torso is super baggy. I don't understand what shape of person this is cut for - certainly not climbers. The price is right but the fit is unusable.

    Amazing, but size down some

    Fit:Runs large

    I didn’t think I was going to love this jacket, but I kinda fell in love with it. This jacket is very lightweight and sheds water extremely well. Longest I’ve been out in the rain with it is about 30 minutes in a decent rain, but I stayed dry underneath. I would not a few things about it though for the sake of other. First of all, I’ve noticed that most of Backcountry’s clothes size a little big and this is no different. 80% of my jackets and clothes are mediums, but this is a small and still feels baggy, like a large Medium or maybe even a large. Overall though, this is a jacket I’d happily use to throw on as a shell!

    Kept me Dry!

    I've only used this a couple times but have managed to put it to the test in some pretty heavy rain. So far it's kept me completely dry for hours in heavy rain, and the pit zips are great for dumping heat fast. This is a good option if you're looking for a fairly lightweight/packable jacket, without breaking the bank.

    I honestly got this got for fashion not function. The bright orange got me! But then it rained the night I was out with it- and it was perfect. super breathable- and the hood didn't cover up my face so I could still see.

    I have been wearing this Uinta 3L Strech Rain Jacket for a few weeks now and I can't leave home without it. From desert downpours to windy nights walking around town, it covers it all. Amazing fit, pure comfort, and great looks.

    Lightweight. Hose Approved.

    Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    Fit:True to size

    I've used the Uinta 3L a few times but can't say I’ve been confronted with much for weather. I had high hopes that it would perform well but with no weather in the near future, I gave it the ol' hose test. 5 minutes. Dry as seasoned kindlin'.... except for the open pocket. Although it held water on the inside quite well which could come in handy down the trail. It’s super lightweight which makes it a very versatile jacket and it packs down fairly small. I've been using it fly fishing lately as my other wading jackets are a bit on the heavier side for warm days. With the vents and thinner material, it works well as a sun/heat barrier but when the weather moves in, I suspect it's going to keep me dry .The cuffs are great, they taper a bit forward along the top of your hands and are longer than normal. I’ve had other rain jackets where the velcro rolls forward at the hands and ends up chaffing my skin. Not having that problem here. I ordered a large which is a bit baggy for me, but will allow for plenty of layering space if needed.


    Thanks for the review. I noticed you said the Large was a bit baggy for you. What is your height and weight? Also, have you had the chance to test this jacket in serious rain conditions? What's your opinion on this as a primary rain jacket now that you've had it for 10 months? Thanks!


    Its BRIGHT!


    Now that is some legit headbanging buddy!


    Works for spring skiing

    The Uinta jacket surprised me for with how comfortable the fit and feel of the fabric is for a jacket in the "light rain jacket" class compared to others I've had in the past! While it fits a bit baggier than most which is a huge plus for me, this gives me more options to layer under and helps regulate temperature with the space. I was able to comfortably fit my light puffy under it without feeling like an overstuffed burrito (as much as I love burritos!) This jacket has more wearability than most other light shells as well. While it does pack down small, its not a piece ya take for those "just in case" moments, its a piece you can leave the house in. Pros: Lightweight. Easy to stuff into its own zippered pocket. Well ventilated with easy to reach pit zips. Versatile, its been nice for quick protection from A to B at the resort but also a nice jacket for skiing in! Cons: A bit heavy to compete with the Helium II and Minimalist shells. Pit zip pulls are hard to grab with gloves due to the smooth fabric. I've not tested it out in a full on down pour, which like all "waterproof" jackets will still wet out eventually, but I'd not shy away from it with the Uinta.

    I've used this jacket several times now for some touring situations. It is perfect for unpredictable weather. It packs up super small, but when needed is very functional against weather! I'm loving this piece of outerwear in my collection.

    Thank you so much for the intel :)
