Recent Hard Shell Jacket Reviews

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

Didriksons EVA Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars Didriksons EVA Rain jacket is a durable, lightweight, and inexpensive for people on a budget, but who are still in need of a proper raincoat. I am a Dane, meaning I live in Denmark. Denmark is known for two things Hans Christian Andersen and rain, some Danes will tell you that unlike other countries that have four seasons, Denmark only has one: Rainy season. It goes without saying that wet weather gear is an essential part of every Dane's arsenal of clothes. Despite of this I have actually never… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Men's Runoff Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars Really great waterproof shell. Hood is a little difficult to manage at times — sometimes it comes over your eyes when it's not cinched down tight. Zippers work great and the velcro does too. Excellent waterproof top layer that I combine with down to keep me warm and dry when I'm in the cold. Reasonable warmth in breezy conditions too, so it can be worn over your base layer in case you hit a summer rainstorm. Best for people who need a light and packable rainproof layer. Highly recommended This… Full review

Arc'teryx Men's Beta SL Jacket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Good jacket, not quite as hard core as the Alpha SL, more suited to looking good around town, but still delivers in the outdoors. I've had this jacket for several months now, and feel like I can finally offer a review of it. I own this and the Alpha SL Hybrid, which I believe has been discontinued, but I'll compare it anyways.  First, I have both jackets in size medium. I'm about 5'10" 165, they fit me with a little bit of room to layer, but still fit well and look good just over a t shirt. The… Full review

Marmot Aegis Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars I bought this jacket in red. Red is a bit too bright for me. I should have gotten black. Anyhow, the quality is superb and the fit is great. Most jackets ride up when you lift your arms; this does not. My only con is that the hood is very large. Odds are you won't be wearing a helmet 90 pct of the time so there is a bit extra fabric you will have to deal with up there. Otherwise a great, if pricey jacket. Full review
