Summary

No more wetting out.

Pros

  • Completely waterproof
  • Light

Cons

  • Not breathable

This jacket weighs about 7 ounces and comes with a brimmed hood, front zipper, and armpit zippers. Depending on color choice it is made from sil nylon or polyurethane treated sil nylon. There are elastics in the sleeves and a pull cord in the waist to help with a snug fit.

Breathable rain gear sometimes wets out and doesn't always vent enough to keep the sweat from building up. This jacket gives up on breathability, other than the zippered armpits, and focuses on a very light and very waterproof jacket.
