Real Customer Reviews
- Great piece of gear
Likes: Weight, fit, comfort, looks.
- This is a go to for many weight conscious backpackers, and that is precisely why I bought it. It packs neatly into its inside pocket and is extremely lightweight. It is always there when I need it.
- Lightweight, comfortable, sufficiently waterproof
Likes: - Medium weighs 6.1oz on my scale
- Very very comfortable, medium fits me (5'9" 170lbs) with enough room to layer over a down jacket
Dislikes: - No pit zips. Hoping it isn't too much of an issue in the summer
