Good for downpour, as in the "500 year" flood in Lyons, Colorado. Kept me dry while my Gore-Tex jackets leaked. Cut a bit small, which makes it difficult to layer. Wish there was a heavier duty version with pit zips. Would recommend it as a rain shell, for lightweight, not backcountry use.
- Long length
- Waterproof in a downpour, not Gore-tex, ie, "leaktex"
- Double zipper
- Too lightweight, not durable fabric
- No pit zips
- Tends to fit tightly, not easy to layer, especially in chest area for women
