L.L.Bean Stowaway Jacket

0

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Fabric: Gore Tex
Price Paid: $159

Five days on the Boundary Waters. Four days of rain, sleet, and hail. A cheap pair of supposedly waterproof rain pants. Never wet or cold. The long length provided good coverage and compensated for the poor pants. Also, I slipped and went down hard on a rock shelf coming off a portage. My elbows still hurt a month later, but not a mark on the parka. At $159, this parka was $50-100 less than anything else I saw in Gore-Tex (most similar parkas were much shorter as well as more expensive). I wish all my gear worked as well.
