Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $110.00

Summary

Very nice rain jacket. I am an avid hunter and outdoorsman in WA, where we get a lot of nasty weather. Held up very well and stayed dry in the one of the worst snow/rain storms of the year.

Pros

  • Priced reasonably
  • Warm
  • Very functionable

Cons

  • Hood clasps questionable
  • can't handle the hood clasps with gloves on very well

I bought this jacket to replace my old rain gear. wasn't sure how well it would do, but was caught in one of the worst snow/rain storms of the year and was amazed at how well it performed. Stayed dry and warm, cooled down some when stopped but otherwise, very impressed. Lightweight, functional, and no frills. has two inside pockets, one chest pocket and hand warmer pockets. Seems to be very well built, but haven't had it but about 6 months. Fit is fine, had Velcro wrist adjustment, has waist adjustment also. Seems to be very waterproof, so obviously the breathability is basically none, doesn't wick moisture. may want to buy a little large if layering very much, but I had no problem. Seemed to handle abrasion well in timber and other brush. Has waterproof zippers. Have no complaints with this product and I would recommend it to anyone going into bad weather.
