Ultra Light

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

It is light and packs down well however if its pouring constant rain you are going to get wet. Good for a pinch because of how easy it is to carry.

Go with a laminate if you're looking for something water proof though.

The Large fits me great.

Tut tut!

    I think for the cost, it's great lightweight rain coverage. It has it's own bag to stuff it away! It's not going to get you through a typhoon, but for days where light rain is in the forecast, it's a great jacket to toss in your pack.

    I this jacket going to keep you dry in a driving rain during a hike?

    Best Answer

    No. It's very slightly waterproof, in case it starts drizzling while you're outside or something. 1100mm is a very low rating though, for driving rain you'll need something much heavier.

    Compact jacket

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

    This jacket is perfect ! love that it's light weight and compact . I Use my jacket on daily walks / runs.

    Would this be good to layer over a non-bulky down jacket?

    This would be a good addition over a non bulky down jacket for early season (as well as early morning) hikes, as well as a good piece to wear when you encounter some lighter rain.
