Pros Protective hood, comfortable, great for dynamic movements, waterproofWater resistant, wind resistant and breathable, dual direction whole side/pit vents, dual direction main zipperExceedingly water resistant, great fit, comfortable fabric, good zipper design, very durableIncredibly stretchy, comfortable, breathable, long arms, not crinklySimple but functional, can pack away hood, high pockets for waistbelt, inexpensive
Cons Expensive, zipper catches easily on storm flap, no pit zipsVery difficult to pack into its pocket, sleeves a bit short, main zipper difficult to match upNo pit zips for dumping excess heat in a pinch, doesn't pack into a pocket, expensiveThin, hood not great coverage, not windproofNot the most durable, hood not great protection, difficult to fit into pocket
Bottom Line Climbing in inclement weather is never fun but lucky there's a cure for that.In spite of its relatively large packed size and weight, this jacket will meet every other expectation you have for a rain shell.Offering impressive protection from the elements in a very comfortable and well-fitting jacket.You'll pay more for the stretchy fabric of this model, but it just might be worth it if you partake in a lot of aerobic activities that keep you on the move.A decent jacket that works well without costing a ton.
