Perfect for the PNW

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

The Eco-Shell isn't a shell you'll see in brands other than Fjallraven but that doesn't mean you should be scarred of it. The Eco-Shell will keep you dry anywhere from Scandinavia to Porlandia. A waterproof rating above 20K mm is enough for a day's downpour and this one sits at 30K mm.

The fit of this jacket is loose with ability to cinch the waist. The small feels big, I felt I could have gone with an XS and my friend Em who is half a size smaller than me thought the XXS would be a fine fit. I don't know if I'd go that far.

I would wear this jacket on a day hike but not necessarily on a multiday trip -- for a multi day trip I'd snag the waist length Keb Eco-Shell.

What kind of lining does this have? Would this be warm enough during those dark, 35-degree rainy days in the PNW, or is this more of a spring/fall jacket?
