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.

  • A technical hardshell jacket for hiking in stormy weather
  • Microporous lamination provides a waterproof, breathable defense
  • DWR finish encourages moisture to bead up and roll off
  • Four-way stretch ensures unrestricted mobility on the trail
  • Zippered vents let you dump heat when you're on the go
  • Adjustable hood, hem, and cuffs keep out the chill
  • Reflective hits add an element of safety to low-viz situations
  • Zippered pockets give you a secure stash for small essentials

Great fit, good stretch, light weight

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

Kept me bone dry and warm during a solid 8 hr Full on rain and snow mix day. Hood fits well. Great Orange colour to have in the hunting backcountry area.
I tend to wear large shirts and jackets for mobility and this one fits as a large just the same with room for a couple base layers. Zippers are tight and keep out drafts. Arm length is perfect for me. But if you're a knuckle dragger this model might not be for you.

Fit is super weird

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: M

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

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: Small

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!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

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.

Solid & I loved the color

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

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.

Top Notch.

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.

Lightweight. Hose Approved.

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!

      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.

      Amazing! Lightweight!

      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 :)
