Normally, in the world of outdoor clothing, the terms 'full-featured' and 'lightweight' are mutually exclusive. The Outdoor Research Women's Aspire Gore-Tex Paclite Jacket is the exception to the rule. At just 13 ounces, you'll barely know you're wearing it at all. That is, of course, until the rain starts. The guaranteed waterproof breathable Gore-Tex Paclite membrane easily shrugs off the storm. Outdoor Research also designed the Aspire with its TorsoFlo venting technology to allow you to dump heat in a hurry without getting soaked. The adjustable hood, cuffs, and hood seal out the weather, and the Aspire stuffs into its own pocket for easy packing once the sun comes out.
