For the money this is the most durable rain suit out there. This coupled with being lightweight makes this a great combo for backcountry.
- Hard to compact down, but doable
So this is a lightweight waterproof, they have kept me dry on more then one hike, and extremely affordable rain suit. I finally retired my first one this fall, after six years of hard use. Paid $25 for the first one and the same for the second, and yes, that's a jacket and pants for the price.
Lightweight material breathable and waterproof as advertised. These are extremely durable, have bush whacked more than once with the first set. They also are good in the winter for a windbreaker as well.
I do search and rescue in Maine as well and these have survived more then one long rainy brush filled night, keeping me dry. They are very durable. Do not let the price deceive you. They are quality, just now replacing the first one six years later. They even come with a stuff sack. Packing them down is the only drawback. They do pack down, but require some effort to do so.
For the price no better rain suit out there. I use these not only as a rain suit but as a snow and wind suit as well. Should they damage in the field easily fixed with duck tap til one can finish the hike and order replacement suit. I ordered direct from the company, free shipping special, but have seen in Wal Mart and other box stores, but worry about knock offs, so would stick with company direct.
Over six years of experience with this product and over 15 years backcountry hiking experience.

It's my second season with the suit and it's still holding up. ultra lite and packable.
- does its job
- flammable, will probably shred if not lounging
Look, this is an inexpensive, waterproof, full hooded suit. what do you want for 20 bucks? the jacket weighs less than 6 oz. try finding something lighter and as waterproof for under 100. my 10-12 day "off trail" pack for the sierras (without food and water) weighs 16 1/2 lbs. this suit has found a home in it.

These are great lightweight rainwear. I wear them all the time when the sun changes to rain.
On the trail they aren't as hot as other gear that I have had. But they can't be beaten, as they are very thin. Keep clear of open flames too. They burn.
But just for hiking and sitting around in the rain they are great.
