Real Customer Reviews
Likes: Thin and packable jacket.
Dislikes: Wish to have the side pockets for cold weather.
- Great jacket, lightweight.
Likes: Fits her well, keeps her dry, and is very lightweight, a must for backpacking.
Dislikes: No pockets, fabric is a bit noisy.
- Great rain jacket!
Keeps you dry
Dislikes: The built in "bill" of the hood will get very wrinkled and fit weird if you do not stuff it just right.
- LOVE this rainjacket
Likes: This is my second purchase of this great ultralight rain jacket. My first was lifted off my hands by my daughter, so I had to get it again! Love the navy blue, with fuchsia trim, and love the fit. I wear a size small, I am 5.7" and 115 lb.
Dislikes: I would like one hand pocket down low but even that is not necessary. No real dislikes
- Perfect Rain Jacket
Likes: Lightweight, packs small, length
I initially ordered a medium, but returned for a small, which fits a lightweight puffy underneath. 5'4 ~130#
Dislikes: No hand pockets
- Love this jacket
Likes: This jacket keeps you dry even in a pretty strong rain storm-- The best part is that it isn't "crunchy" sounding/feeling like other rain jackets that I have had. It is super lightweight too, so it is nice to always have it in my pack without having to add weight.
