    Shell Yeah

    I like the price point, breath ability, features, and versatility. It's a great fit too! The wrist cuffs are adjustable as well as the hood. At a little over a pound, it's great for travel too. I never had to use the underarm vents - the jacket already feels light enough as is. I love the material! Stretchy, but tough at 30 denier. It's held up to a lot of rain so far. I use this casually and on hikes.

    Most of the rain jackets and shells I have used in the past get real sweaty real quick once you start moving. This shell is awesome because it is waterproof but also breathable which makes it a much better option for physical activities. I love the Acentshell material, it is very stretchy and breathes well. There are some vents under the arms to regulate temperature when you are working extra hard. It is very lightweight weighing only 1lb 1.6oz. It packs well and will even pack into its own pocket. This is a great jacket to be used for hiking, climbing, and backpacking. It also looks good for casual use to impress the ladies on the night out.


    Many thanks, Tyler! Leta OR Rep

    Does it's job and looks good doing it

    Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    Fit:True to size

    I just got this rain jacket for my husband who has had an old rain jacket for years that he got from a company he used to work for. He loves this new rain jacket and has been wearing it a lot since we've had a good amount of rain this last week and weekend. It is totally waterproof and he hasn't had any problem with it holding onto the moisture or wetting out yet. He likes the adjustable wrist cuffs to keep out the water even when he lifts his arms. And the hood cinches down which is so helpful when it gets a little windy. He hasn't worn it climbing but the material feels durable and like it will be able to hold up against some abrasive sports, like rock climbing. It's also convenient that it stuffs into its own pocket. Perfect for when you just want to throw it in your bag and want to go. He can wear a medium or a large in jackets and the medium fits him great!


    Excellent review, Hailey - thank you for passing it on! Leta OR Rep


    Will the hood on this jacket fit over a bike helmet?


    will the jacket fabric hold up to hiking, compare to rip stop material
