It was a great rain coat while it lasted, but I was disappointed with how the waterproofing held up over a few years.


  • Great colors
  • Smooth zippers
  • The hood tightens nicely during high winds


  • Lost waterproofing after a year

I've had the Rain Shadow for a few years and loved it for the first year. After about a year it completely lost its waterproof quality and the inner layer started shedding. It started to feel sort of like a moist baggy, holding in moisture instead of keeping it out.

I wish the waterproofing had lasted longer because it was great while it lasted. You can cinch it down on the hood and waist really well during high winds.
