Pacific Trail Men's Pac Tech Terrain Jacket

The best rain jacket I've ever owned. Better than anything I can find nowadays. Like many other reviewers I've found that this is the best rain jacket I've ever owned. I bought it many years ago for around $70 which seemed expensive at the time... I'd pay double now without thinking twice if they made them again. Mine is no longer waterproof and the zipper broke.  :-(   Columbia Sportswear bought Pacific Trail and I've emailed them but don't hold out much hope. I just can't bring myself to buy… Full review

Red Ledge Storm Backpacker Poncho

Functional and durable for hiking in the rain with a large pack. I think it beats a rain jacket and pants overall, in that it keeps the wearer dry down to the knee, AND keeps the pack dry, INCLUDING the shoulder straps, and isn't too "sweaty." Construction, Function, Fit, Comfort, and Adjustablity: This is a one-size garment. I am 5'8" and about 160 lbs. It fits me very nicely. A taller or stouter person would be less well-covered, and a shorter person might find it excessively long, especially… Full review

L.L.Bean Men's Mountain Classic Anorak

Perfect description. I cross country ski and snowshoe and am old school. I have a North Face from 1978 I "outgrew." There for quite a few years, the only anorak I could find were tactical gear...but now they are back in colors other than coyote and camo and better made. I wear Patagonia AND the LL Bean Primaloft bivys with a hood under these and it is a perfect combination over a base layer and different weights mid layers. I live in MT and temps run from single digits below (my personal limits)… Full review

Frogg Toggs DriDucks Trail-Pac Rain Suit

For the money this is the most durable rain suit out there. This coupled with being lightweight makes this a great combo for backcountry. 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… Full review

Black Diamond Men's StormLine Stretch Rain Shell

Overall, the BD StormLine is a great addition for casual wear or serious hiking. The fabric is lightweight, comfortable, wind and waterproof. The long pit zips allow for temperature regulation in addition to the semi-breathable fabric. Sleeve gussets allow for freedom of arm movement. A worthwhile piece of clothing to add to one's outdoor collection! The StormLine is carefully crafted in many points: lightweight, comfortable fabric that is seam-sealed; wind and waterproof, packable in its own right… Full review

Arc'teryx Men's Beta SL Jacket

IT IS NOT A RAIN JACKET, despite what the description implies. I like the design, the weight, the fit—all the things people mention. But this is a just a very expensive windbreaker that fails even a modest rain test. It soaks through in the back and sleeves. The worst part is that this was a replacement for the equivalent Alpha model, now discontinued, which had the same failure profile—completely leaky sleeves—not condensation, either. Bona fide cold rain water. So, two strikes for Arc'teryx,… Full review

Black Diamond Men's StormLine Stretch Rain Shell

A well-engineered rain jacket that kept me dry throughout a historically wet summer, autumn, and early winter while hiking and camping. While not super technical, this jacket would more than suffice for the average outdoor enthusiast. This jacket was tested in conjunction with the Black Diamond StormLine Stretch Rain Pants, but was reviewed separately. Features:The Black Diamond StormLine Stretch Rain Shell is a pretty straightforward rain jacket with two, ample-sized zippered hand pockets; long… Full review

Arc'teryx Men's Alpha FL Jacket

Bomber, very lightweight jacket that you can depend on. I have both the Alpha SV and Alpha FL shells and have used them in various activities for several years. Both are amazingly well made, keep you warm and dry, and give you the confidence that you'll be able to depend on them in the backcountry for many seasons. Pardon my review in terms of talking about both of these models, but to me they are like a set that I choose for different needs. I am of average height (5'10") and have a muscular build… Full review

Arc'teryx Men's Alpha SV Jacket

The best heavy shell money can buy!!! I have both the Alpha SV and Alpha FL shells and have used them in various activities for several years.

Pardon my review in terms of talking about both of these models, but to me... they are like a set that I choose for different needs. I am of average height (5'10") and have a muscular build (200#).
