Recent Hard Shell Jacket Reviews

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

The North Face Women's Venture Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, waterproof, roomy. The two main things I like about this jacket is that it's lightweight, but not flimsy...and also roomy. It's a bit longer than I expected, but that gives more protection to your body. I'm usually a 1X, but an XL is perfect for me in this jacket. It's waterproof too. I like it! Full review

Target Dry Mac in a Sac Classic Jacket

rated 0.5 of 5 stars A waterproof jacket which does not meet with manufacturer's description. This was a much vaunted ultra light single layer waterproof jacket by my trusted fishing tackle dealer. The specs read well, highly waterproof (5000 mm), highly breathable (5000 gsm), wind proof, adjustable hood, vented back, packs into a small stuff sack etc. First time out in light rain my arms and shoulders were wet, especially where the pack shoulder straps were in about 3 hours. The second time I was caught out in a storm… Full review

Columbia Arcadia Rain Jacket

rated 4 of 5 stars Waterproof jacket that breathes well. Great to use everyday or out in the woods. My wife has used this jacket and she wears a small. She is 5'6'' and 116#. She loves the fit. It is very water resistant and has stood up to a couple storms.  Full review

Arc'teryx LEAF Alpha LT Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars The Arc'teryx LEAF Alpha LT Jacket is a top-of-the-line hardshell jacket with well-thought-out features and unbeatable performance. Primarily designed for the military/law enforcement tactical community, the Alpha LT takes what was best about the Arc'teryx light hardshell line and improved on it. This hardshell is extremely lightweight, packable, and durable making it well-suited for the backpacking community. The LEAF Alpha LT Jacket is of unmatched quality when compared to other commercial or… Full review

Pacific Trail Men's Pac Tech Terrain Jacket

rated 5 of 5 stars I love that this jacket is still in great shape after several years of rough treatment and it continues to function like it did when new. I'm sad they are no longer available. Full review
