Major protection, minor packing space.

Whether you're bouncing from hostel to hostel or hauling your climbing gear home from the crag, you need to pack light. The Black Diamond Men's Stormline Stretch Rain Shell is the waterproof, windproof layer you need to protect you from the surprise storm that you'll inevitably get caught in, and it packs down into its pocket to fit easily into your pack. Its BD.Dry technology seals out rain and wind while allowing air to flow to manage moisture inside the jacket. Thanks to the Stormline's four-way stretch construction and underarm gussets, you'll have plenty of mobility for scrambling and reaching. The hood fits comfortably with a climbing helmet so you don't have to throw safety away in order to be protected from the weather.

  • Rain jacket for exploring new places in questionable weather
  • Waterproof BD.Dry membrane seals out the elements
  • Four-way stretch construction for comfortable movement
  • Adjustable hem and cuffs for a secure fit
  • Underarm gussets let you move freely
  • Packs into its pocket for easy storage

  • Q & A

No draw cord on lower hood

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: large

Lack of a draw string on the lower hood leaves a less than desire able opening that will catch wind - you can cinch it around the top of your head but leaves loose fabric at the sides. Seems to be the correct size as I like to be able to cover my hands with the sleeves. A medium typically pulls across my shoulders and neck and exposes my hands when hunkered down, but a smaller size won't fix inability to cinch the lower hood.

LOVE this jacket

My wife is constantly asking me why I NEED so very many jackets....and I might finally have found one to rule them all. I am seriously impressed with what BD was able to do here.

I initially bought this because I was looking for something to replace my BD alpine start hoody--an awesome piece in its own right but not 100% waterproof. So I wanted a packable emergency layer for backpacking and climbing, but that wasn't so lightweight as to sacrifice durability. This jacket exceeded my expectations.
First off, I love the cut/tailoring. Most jackets in this category tailor them to be really short and I like my jackets to come down to mid-upper thigh. So it looks really good, doesn't feel too "euro alpine nerd" like a lot of other jackets in this category. Two big friendly hand pockets are generous and zip, it is amazing how often ultralight wind/rain layers try to skimp on weight by cutting out the pockets, a feature I actually appreciate.

Also love the fabric. A little stretch is not only awesome for movement during activity, but it also doesn't show wrinkles when packed/unpacked. Meaning I can wear this when running errands and not feel like I am in a crinkly, super technical layer. Also, to my surprise the face fabric is juust burly enough to withstand some abuse when skiing resort and ski touring--something I never anticipated doing when I bought this jacket!

In a size L there is enough room for me to throw a warm mid layer underneath and I anticipate this jacket to get me through all but the coldest stormiest ski days. I hike often when I ski, even bootpacking inbounds, and this is a highly breathable layer that blocks the wet and wind while still able to dump tons of heat.

Overall it's slightly less breathable than the alpine start, but did I mention the pit zips?? They're big, placed in the right spot, and more than make up for any loss in breathability. So in spite of the fact that I can ski in this jacket, I would be equally comfortable stowing it in my pack for bike rides and climbs, or for stashing it as an emergency layer for all kinds of backpacking.

I anticipate this being a constant travel/adventure companion for a long time. Hey BD want to make it perfect? Add a chest pocket for a phone!

Happy gift-receiver :)

Gave this as a gift for my brother's birthday. He needed a jacket that would be lightweight but truly waterproof (not just water-resistant) for hikes in the rain. First impressions are that the color is brilliantly bright red for the Hyper Red color. He hasn't taken it out on any downpours yet, but says that the material feels hardy and like it will last and do its job.

Fantastic, bombproof jacket!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

I have ended up using it most nonstop in various conditions while motorbiking through Vietnam over two months. It kept me bone dry in torrential downpours while driving a motorbike at speed and was easy to dry off even in the wild humid temps of Southeast Asia.

The jacket has great storage in both pockets which keep anything dry while inside and zipped up. I didn't find any issues with the zippers and their functionality and they protected against heavy rain without any issues. The BD Dry material is top notch and even after a dozen washes and weeks of rain it still held up and looks bright and clean.

I bought a size up with a large to use as and outside waterproof layer over a jacket in colder conditions.

Simple, Functional Shell

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

The Black Diamond Stormline Stretch Rain Shell is a great, simple rain and wet weather shell. It's fairly lightweight and packs into its own hand pocket, which is a nice feature to have. Overall, it's a basic shell, but it's a perfect product that performs at a level you expect from Black Diamond.

Perfect Rain Jacket

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

This thing is a huge upgrade in comfort from my old rain jacket. The material is softer, and has some stretch to it which is great for mobility. It is also a lot more breathable so it's way less clammy inside. With my old rain jacket I felt like I'd get wet from sweat on the inside more often than from the actual rain, this jacket has a much better balance of waterproofness/breathability to keep you as dry as possible from both sides. I've worn in many full on downpours with success. The 10k rating had me worried at first, and if you're out backpacking or something spending hours in hard rain then you'd probably want a little more... but for an all around rain jacket (camping, work, around town, day hikes) it hasn't let me down.

Does The Job

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Bought this jacket as a gift but have some feedback. "The Stormline Stretch Rain Shell worked perfect, kept me totally dry even during an English rainstorm when it is raining sheets"

Great jacket

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

This jacket is dope. Waterproofing works well. Was thinking of getting the xl so I could layer up underneath, but went with the large which is pleanty big for a micro puff and fleece underneath. I’m 6ft 185 for comparison.

Love this jacket

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

Light enough to toss into a pack for those just in case scenarios, sizing is true, I typically wear a Large in pretty much everything and can even layer a light hoodie under this when needed. Great for backpacking or just wearing around the city. I really like the 4-way stretch material and the underarm vents are perfect for dumping excess heat.

Not what I was looking for

I bought this to replace an old Marmot Precip, but returned it due to its moisture repellent rating. It was on par with the Precip but for more money, so I decided to get something with a little higher water rating. Seems like a decent light shell though!

Love it.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: small

Im 5'10 and got a small. I am fairly slim, and it fits great! that being said, if you are shorter like me...it fits a little long. I dont need super fitted feel when i just want to keep rain off me. It actually is breathable! yeah you heard that right. I got caught in a storm mid pitch and threw it on...it held up amazing!

BD delivers, as usual

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

The quick hits:
- Great technical jacket - excellet waterproofing, stretch, weight, and all the little features (love the loop to clip it to a harness)
- Sized to be layered - I normally wear a large which is what I ended with, but also tried a medium which was too small; I still think it looks great and can be worn around town, but it's designed as technical first
- Definitely go with the Stormline over the Fineline, for the extra $30 you get a much more versatile jacket

I've been wearing the Marmot PreCip for a couple seasons now and it's been a great jacket, but as I've increasingly pushed into more technical ascents and climbs, it just wasn't cutting it. I was looking for something with just as much waterproofing but more mobility when I saw this from BD. I believe in sticking to the brands that deliver the quality you look for, and BD continues to deliver. Super light, packs up great, love the loop to clip it to a harness, just enough stretch to not sacrifice waterproofing. It fits slightly looser so you can layer but you can adjust the wrists and such to make it fit for around the city when you grab beers after a summit.

The new Stormline jacket from BD is a great high performance budget friendly jacket. Its light, breathable, and packable. If you are looking for a jacket that will fend off the elements and not feel like you are wearing a trash bag this jacket is great. Attached is photo for sizing. I am 6'2" 175lbs with just a t-shirt the M fits well. If you are planning on layering I would suggest a size up. If you have any questions feel free to reach out to me directly with the info listed above.

Great jacket for adventures!

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

Great jacket for adventures where the weather could change at any second. It packs down to almost nothing. Has a relaxed fit and the XL fits a little big on me, I have an XL in the First Light insulated jacket which fits a bit smaller and more snug. Arm pit vents are convenient when hiking and exerting energy and the Velcro adjustments on the cuffs also come in handy to the perfect fit. Only thing that bothers me is there is no bungee cord to tighten the hood in the front of the hood, the only bungee is on the back of the head, for the times I am not wearing a helmet it would be nice to have a perfect the ft on my face.
