Sherpa Adventure Gear Thamel 2.5 Layer Jacket

I've never purchased such an incredible, waterPROOF jacket with fully taped seams for such a price. Can't beat it.
Drawstring around the waist is handy. Elastic cuffs fit well.
The only thing that I miss are two side hand pockets. The only external pocket it up on the left breast.
A great jacket, a great deal, and a great look otherwise. No regrets.
Here's what other sites are saying:
When trekkers, backpackers and climbers come through Kathmandu, they make a point of staying in the historic, colorful Thamel district - home to tiny artisan shops, Internet cafes and budget accommodations. Sherpa's waterproof/breathable, 2.5 layer Thamel Jacket gives you fully seam-sealed, waterproof/breathable protection at a price to fit even the tightest of budgets. And will compress to a size to take up almost no space in your pack.
