The Mojave is more of an outer layer than mid, so keep that in mind when making your ultimate purchase. If you need something more sweater-like then you’ll need to look elsewhere. But if you’re looking for a jacket that can stand up to harsh conditions, then the Brooks-Range Mojave deserves serious consideration.
We tested it two ways. In our lab test, we found no penetration of water into or through the jacket. In the real world rainstorm test, the Mojave got one heck of a drenching in a recent Northern California rainstorm, and didn’t miss a beat. The exterior durable water repellent and DownTek combination was nearly flawless. Although we had a little seepage at the seams after 10 minutes of exposure, nothing penetrated into the interior of the jacket and drying time was impressively quick.
