User Review: Kelty Big Thunder Jacket
Fabric: nylon very light coated polyurethane
Fill: 210T nylon taffeta
Price Paid: $70
Bought at REI in 14/01/02, this nice color rainjacket (top navy/sky blue) existed also in 4 double colors. It was pretty good shaped as a parka with white elastics drawstring at waist and hip, though ventilated by two transversal mesh pockets I perspired much. Very good visored hood with back adjust stripe.
Unfortunatly used short time because nylon coating peeled off fastly due to the bad quality preparation of the polyurethan coating. This is maybe the main reason why Kelty cancelled his cloth range, pity? I also found the velcro raingutter not wide enough, double one might have been better with plastic snap buttons.
I hope one day Kelty remake this outdoor range with better nylon quality.
