Kathmandu Amphi Rain Jacket

rated 2.0 of 5 stars
photo: Kathmandu Amphi Rain Jacket waterproof jacket

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.
