User Review: Red Ledge Men's Thunderlight Jacket
Price Paid: $40?
I am an occasional AT hiker, all four seasons of the year. I have owned the Thunderlight Jacket for about seven years, and I always carry it and the pants by the same maker on hikes when rain is even remotely possible.
I like it much. It is very light weight, compressible and will keep you dry. I live in the Southeast US, so humidity is usually a factor. The jacket is basically coated nylon, and may not breath as well as some more "open" fabrics. It is thin, so if water sits on the surface and you are bare armed underneath, you will feel a coolness, but that is not always a bad thing.
Still, it beats a big 'ole honkin' hardshell that makes you feel and look like the Gorton's fisherman. Recommended.
