Recent Hard Shell Jacket Reviews

Wiggy's Cagoule

rated 4 of 5 stars This review/opinion pertains to Wiggy's products in general. I own two Wiggy's bags, a bivy sack, a rain jacket, and six ecotats made by Wiggy's. All are over built and what I would call BET YOUR LIFE GEAR. The temp ratings tend to be very conservative. The #10 YKK zippers are bulky but built to last. I would not hesitate to buy Wiggy's products or give them to loved ones; they are that good. Wiggy's products I have had experience with: 1) The Freedom shelter (ecotat): Very versatile item in that… Full review

L.L.Bean Women's Trail Model Raincoat

rated 5 of 5 stars I have been using this raincoat for about a year and I highly recommend it. The best part about this raincoat is the hood, in my opinion. It has a velcro flap in the back that allows to adjust the depth of the hood. It has a two-way zipper, which is excellent for those days when I need to walk faster, and need as much freedom of movement as I can get. Overall this coat is boxy, and I recommend sizing down for a more form-fitting experience. I have long arms and this coat has sleeves long enough… Full review

Lowe Alpine Triple Point Ceramic Jacket

rated 1.5 of 5 stars I would not recommend this jacket because the lining has completely flaked off and looks like dandruff which gets on everything. The jacket was bought new and started flaking within one year of only wearing it a couple of times a month. The overall fit is good with convenient, adjustable cuffs and the zipper is of good quality. It is easy to wear layers under this jacket. The downside is that the entire inside lining is completely flaked away and looks like dandruff and gets over everything, making… Full review

Berghaus VapourLight Hyper Smock

rated 3.5 of 5 stars With its claim as the lightest rain jacket in the world — if you are looking for the absolute lightest weight rain jacket you can find, this is it. But, you must be able to live with very minimal features. I really like this jacket for its simplicity and extremely lightweight and packability. It could be a good choice for a hiker, backpacker, cyclist, or anyone that needs the lightest gear possible. If you want a jacket with more functionality, find a jacket with a couple more features and a couple… Full review

Marmot Men's PreCip Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great rain jacket. I have used this jacket extensively and would definitely buy it again. Picked it up for $70 at the end of season sale at Gander Mountain. I tested immediately on a warm(er) January rainy day. Kept me dry and fit great. I used it for a 50 day thru hike. It worked well in the rain and as an alternate lightweight jacket for the cool mornings. Fit well, has not shown any wear through all of this. Only drawback I can tell is that it does need to be washed regularly. As you perspire,… Full review

EMS Men's Thunderhead Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars The Thunderhead Jacket is a lightweight, waterproof, and windproof jacket suitable for use in all seasons. The rollaway hood is easily accessible and doesn't fill up with rain if you'd rather wear a rain hat. Exterior pockets are large and easy to access. Long pit zips help ventilate even in warmer weather. I bought my EMS Thunderhead Jacket about a year ago because I needed a lightweight, waterproof and windproof shell for 4-season use. It's completely waterproof, and the pit zips allow for excellent… Full review

Outdoor Research Men's Paladin Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars A great, no-nonsense rain shell from OR. Lightweight and truly waterproof. If you're looking for a basic rain layer for outdoor activities, this is a great option. It'll keep you dry during even the strongest rain and is sort of lightweight. However, it won't keep you warm by itself (but is super layering-friendly) and the hood is awkwardly large without a helmet, but still does its job. Also, as this is a climbing-oriented jacket, it's weird there's no pack-up-and-clip-to-harness bag included. Full review

Fjallraven Eco-Trail Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Simply put, this is a well-designed, well-constructed, stylish, and environmentally responsible jacket. If you can afford it, you will be glad you bought it. I look for clothing that will stand up to hard use and shows signs that the people who made it used it a lot. This jacket has many little features that show that it was well-thought out by the designers. And though it is lightweight, it in no way feels flimsy. Excellent attention to detail, an excellent jacket. One note, it's best for slim… Full review

Columbia Watertight Jacket

rated 3 of 5 stars This is a solid jacket for wet conditions, but it still has room for improvement. I like the way it compacts into its built in stuff sack and fits a little big so that I can add layers underneath it when it's cold. I would recommend this jacket for those who want to spend a few weekends in the great outdoors throughout the year or for anyone who wants a cool looking rain jacket to wear around town. I give this a 3 star rating mainly because of its ability to keep you dry in the rain. It works, but… Full review
