Should be called wet jacket, NOT rain jacket. Deceiving and disgusting. Thanks, Kathmandu.

Pros

  • Yes, you get to waste your money, time, and be disappointed.

Cons

  • Not waterproof

"Waterproof, windproof and breathable – the Amphi is all that"

Should be called wet jacket, NOT rain jacket. For $400 that is inexplicably ridiculous, and a scam, and deceiving, and illegal. Besides under my arms I was completely wet after a 20-minute walk in mild rain, and that was with the hoodie up, so no water was getting in around my neck. Really peed off.

I recall reading negative things about Kathmandu some 8 years ago and I said I'll never buy here for serious and honest adventure gear, but I forgot briefly and gave in. NEVER AGAIN. You can buy a $20 raincoat that actually stops water completely.

Shocking and sad really. Thanks, Kathmandu. That is downright wrong. At least you can thank me for the money; that's what it's all about, isn't it?

I chose to write here because they didn't allow my review on their site.

Experience

Walks in rain... Then walking wet and cold in rain...

Bummer about the bad experience, Dan. Were you able to return it or get any help from Kathmandu?
