User Review: Solstice Backpacker Parka
Fabric: rip-stop/taslon; Microshed wp/b
Price Paid: $200
Had to send one back because of leaking on shoulders, I think it was the DWR actually. They sent me a new one and it seems to be working fine. The Tech Fleece jacket they make zips in and kept me very warm standing on top of mountain at Steamboat in CO on 5F day w/no sun at all and lots of wind and snow. Good for budget minded camper and skier, but Gore-Tex will probably last longer. Material holds up well under abrasion it seems.
