This rain jacket is great. I've had it for a little while now and it's great for packing down small and is by far the lightest rain jacket I've come across.
Don't make the mistake however, of thinking of this product as a warming layer, it's great for keeping your layers dry but not for keeping you warm by itself.
Steep and Cheap has it on their site every so often for a great price as they always do. This jacket is a must buy and I highly recommend it.
