Ultra-lightweight and balancing a minimalist design focus with the need to incorporate essential performance features, the waterproof/breathable Ultimate Direction Women’s Ultra Jacket is sure to appeal to trail runners and other ounce-counters.
Constructed of 20D HexNylon Fastbreath Ultra fabric, the jacket weighs in at just 5.3 ounces.

A patent-pending channel in the jacket’s hood also enhances airflow while keeping you dry. Ergonomic shoulder construction ensures that mobility isn’t restricted.
Other features of the jacket include one internal chest pocket with a media port and integrated FlipMitts, a fold up design to the cuffs that provides minimalist over-the-hands protection when conditions really turn nasty.

Real Customer Reviews
- Great jacket; cheap zipper
Likes: Love the hood. The structured brim and pull cord on each side of the face helps keep rain out of your face when hiking/biking in the rain. I also like the hand pockets, the internal zippered pocket, and the super light weight.
Dislikes: I love everything about this jacket except the front zipper. Feels cheap, and it has disconnected at the bottom while zipped a couple of times. The size also seems to run just slightly on the small side. I usually wear a size small in jackets, and this one fits a bit tight and short. I am probably going to return it for a Medium.
