Recent Hard Shell Jacket Reviews

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

Sierra Designs Men's Hurricane Parka

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Works about as well as a garbage bag with arm holes cut into it. I bought this parka because it was cheap, and that's what I got — a cheap parka. Doesn't breathe, wets out quickly, and the interior feels damp after a short time in the rain. Fit is baggy which seems to be typical of SD's tailoring (all over the map with little consistency). There's a reason SD radically changes their lineup from year to year: they just can't get it right. Rather than buy their mediocre gear every year, I've decided… Full review

Sierra Designs Men's Hurricane HP Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars For two years, both my jacket and my son's worked as advertised. Good value for the money. I and my teenage son have each owned these jackets for two years, and we wear them every day (even in summer I use mine essentially as a sweater at work, and my son does the same at school).  We have had no problems with failed zippers, tearing, or other craftsmanship issues. My son has successfully used his for riding to class on a bike in the rain at college. The only problem is that these are, indeed,… Full review

Outdoor Research Clairvoyant Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Overall, I LOVE this coat! It's a soft, attractive, great layer piece. But the coat has a design issue that can work against its purpose, which I will explain below. An all-woman design team created this hybrid design — the coat has some really great features. This piece also strikes a nice middle ground of being tough enough to go play in, but it is attractive enough to be worn to the office. Per OR’s website:Designed specifically for women, by women, the Clairvoyant Jacket uses the same incredibly… Full review

Peak Oil Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Take an old material and proofing method and apply it in a modern design — this is the Peak Oil Jacket. Canvas proofed with bees wax and linseed oil, kangaroo leather details and built with minimal seams to an open source pattern. This is a unique jacket suitable for a wide range of applications. First things first, I have worn this jacket everyday since it arrived. I love it! I wear it around the house, out to the washing line, putting the rubbish out. Any excuse to wear it. I really look forward… Full review

Arc'teryx Men's Squamish Hoody

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The single best all round piece I have ever purchased. It comes with me everywhere I go. I have had this piece for a year now and it comes with me on nearly every trip I do. I run it and appreciate its weather resistance in cooler rainy conditions. The water beads off so well. And yet running I have no problems with it as it breathes so well you hardly notice it. I climb with it a love that it's so packable it sits right on my harness with no bother, folds out when I need to cut the bite of a windy… Full review

The North Face Men's Verto Storm Jacket

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Silent Orange Is The New Black! This is a high quality waterproof, breathable storm jacket that is very useful for (dare I say) fast and light summit approaches, climbing, hiking, or any outdoor activity where weight is a significant factor. This rain jacket appears to be focused toward the athlete and minimalist, rather than the mainstream market that some of the larger companies like TNF and Eddie Bauer typically place their attention. The product group line is called the ‘Summit Series.’… Full review

REI Boys' Rainwall Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars Great fit, allows for layering, fantastic durability. This jacket fits kids, and relatively small adults. I have used it for five years, and the rip stop fabric and breathable waterproofing remains at 100% effectiveness. Full review
