Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
t’s been a long time since I’ve worn any piece of mountaineering gear that I consider to be fashionable. BlackYak is a high-end mountaineering outfitter that is just entering the scene in the USA with their top of the line clothing. In BlackYak’s new Kuri Jacket, you can stand out in a crowd (and look good doing it) without sacrificing any of the features you need in a technical hardshell. It’s a bit on the expensive side, but you know what they say... buy nice or buy twice!
The Kuri jacket is a high quality piece of gear. It doesn’t show any signs of wear after several months of shoving it in the bottom of my pack and wearing it in the most extreme and rugged conditions, and I don’t expect it to anytime soon. It’s just as waterproof as the day I got it without additional treatments. I will say that the yellow jacket does show dirt, but it washes off super easily due to the waterproof nature of the coat.
