Why We Like The Foray II Jacket

When the skies unleash an unexpected deluge, we take shelter in the Outdoor Research Foray II Jacket. It's just as at home cruising around Brooklyn as it is on the Appalachian Trail, and the GORE-TEX Paclite 2-layer membrane and stuff-sack pocket make it so lightweight and packable that there's no reason to ever leave it at home.

I would buy this product again and again

I use it on a daily basis during winter. Going to work, walking the dog during the rain, and more .

Wanted to really like this jacket.

Unfortunately, I was soaked through seams and zippers after just an hour of hard rain. Maybe it's designed more as an emergency jacket than something that can keep you dry all day. My expectations were high, I own dozens of OR gear. Very uncommon you all fall short. Maybe I have a defective jacket? I thought about returning it but I'm just not like that. Makes a great windbreaker!

Light and keeps you dry.

Lightweight and waterproof. Exactly what I need to keep the wet off for spending all day in the snow or rain. Just hits the spot. Throw a layer underneath and it is a great windblocker on a cold day, too.

Vented for days

Most vented jacket I have ever had, it's a genius idea. Don't know if any other brand that has vents like this. Runs a bit slim, I went a size up to fit a puffy jacket underneath.

Great Lightweight Rain Jacket

Nice lightweight rain jacket. Plenty of room in the hood. I'm 180lb 6'0 and size large fit me perfectly. Haven't had the chance to try it in a downpour, but it kept me very dry in light/normal rain.

Lightweight and windproof shell

So far, it works well with blocking wind and water seems to wick off most areas on the shell. One thing to note is the collar is quite large and long. Otherwise, the pockets are spacious and the side zips are a nice addition if you wanted a poncho style option.

First one lasted 12 years of hard use

These are great simple rain shells. Love the low bling factor on these and that you can get some basic colors that can be used outdoor recreation or modesty around town. Got my first one 12 years ago and used it hunting, snowboarding, fishing, around town as a daily shell and it has always been reliable.

Disappointed

I bought my Foray II ahead of my first coastal hike (North Coast Trail, Vancouver Island, British Columbia Canada) in May 2023, as we expected to be in rain for the entirety of our 4-day trip. As it turns it turns out, we didn't see a drop of rain. We had some evening and morning fog roll in, which was wet, but no moisture beyond that, and the jacket performed well in those conditions. I've worn the jacket a number of times since then, but hadn't been able to truly give it a test run.....until this past week. We had a wet, snowy morning and we went out for a hike with the dog. Maybe for an hour and 15mins. I wore a fleece underneath and couldn't feel any moisture getting thru, but when we got home and I removed the jacket, the inside was soaked through the arms and shoulders on both sides. The temps were warm so the snow flakes basically melted on impact. I could tell early on in the hike that the moisture wasn't staying on top so I wasn't surprised to see the wet inside once I took the jacket off. I was really hoping for better performance and I am happy we didn't see rain during my NCT hike, as it would have made for a miserable 4-days. Other than that lack of waterproofing, which is the main reason I bought a Gore-Tex jacket in the first place, the Foray II is a nice design, and the size small fit me perfectly. I'm 5'9" and 155lbs, and have room for a fleece underneath. The full zip side openings are a great feature. I see a lot of positive reviews so maybe I got a dud?

Poor fit

This jacket does not fit like my other outdoor research jackets and shells. The arms are way too big and it feels like I'm swimming in it. Feels like they made this jacket for non-active users. Unfortunately I got it for a Christmas present and was beyond the return window.
