Fabric: TH4/polyurethane coating
Price Paid: $140
The jacket and pants survived their first encounter with moisture - light mist on a mountain top - without incident. However, on their next outing, during which it rained steadily for three days, both jacket and pants soaked through within an hour. My gore-tex-clad companions remained warm and dry.
To Red Ledge's - and the Kittery Trading Post's - credit, I was able to return the "rain gear" for a full refund.
I've since invested in a gore-tex ensemble, which has proven itself worthy of the investment several times over.
