Real Customer Reviews
- Great Lightweight, Packable Rain Jacket
Likes: Lightweight, packable, does the job and does it well. It's designed with the consideration that you will probably wear another jacket underneath for warmth, so go with your normal size (no need to size up).
Dislikes: There is one chest pocket, but I wish there were pockets for the hands (many others other seem to share the same sentiment).
- Light packable rain jacket
Likes: Like weight, Packs into its own pocket, True to size
Likes: I haven’t had a chance to test the waterproofing of this jacket, but I love the functionalities of it. The fit is true to size. I would normally wear a small, but I ordered a medium for layering and it’s perfect. I am 5’7, 130 lbs for reference. I plan to use this for trail running, so I love that it can be packed down. I also love how you can adjust the hood so you have full view of the trail while using the hood.
Dislikes: I bought the scarlet color which looks more like a deep pink online (at least on my screen it does). When I received the jacket it was definitely more of a red color. I decided to keep it anyway.
- Extra Light, Stylish Fit, Adjstable Hood, Vibrant Color
Likes: I love this jacket; the way it fits, how light it's, and the way it feels; it's like having a second skin ... I'm sure it will perform great in rainy or windy days ...
Dislikes: I like everything
