Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I really like this drysuit but the material of the legs is easily saturated. When I'm out rafting with friends in early Spring I'm usually the one that has wet layers when we take our drysuits off. It's great for kayaking though as the material the top is made of is much more waterproof. The zipper is impossible to zip by oneself--it gets about a quarter of an inch from the bottom and won't budge unless another person pulls on it. The same can be said about trying to get out of the suit. Best to have a buddy around to help you out. Overall though, a good drysuit. Kokatat is a great company to work with and will fix anything that happens to the drysuit at a reasonable price.

I wanted to love this jacket because it's lightweight and warm. Great for layering or packing in a backpack in case the summit of a hike is a little chilly. But within the first month of owning it the seems started to unravel around the wrists. Just from normal wear. Not doing anything too rugged in the jacket. The threading of the wrists also started to unwind. I contacted Patagonia about this seeing as the jacket was only 2 weeks old when I first noted the problem and they were not willing to exchange the jacket for a new one. I thought that was disappointing considering how expensive the jacket is.

I also find this jacket hard to get off. The zipper in the front does not go deep enough down the front of the jacket to allow it to be easily pulled off. For anyone with broad shoulders this could be hard to get off.

I like this vest for casual adventures. Not overly warm and pretty stiff material but fits well and is cute. I have it in the natural color with the purple. I get a lot of compliments while wearing it but haven't found it of much value for hiking or other outdoor activities. Just not warm enough for me to want to wear it as a layer. Did read in a lot of reviews that it had a boxy fit but didn't find this to be true. I like the fit and it fit true to size for me. Overall would recommend the vest.
