Best Backpacking Rain Jacket

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Don't Poke the Bear from Georgia on Tuesday, June 16, 2015
I do a lot of research before I spend money on anything that is going to be carried in my backpack. Worthless and extra weight, not so much. Must be high quality, light weight, and functional. And then, I search for the best price. This jacket is it, I wore on a section hike on the AT where one day it rained (go figure on the AT in Georgia, who would have thunk it) all day, never stopped and was hot. With this jacket I stayed dry (at least the part covered by this jacket) and kept the sweaty pits down by using the pit zips. It was a bad day for other equipment, my pack cover failed and everything in my pack got soaked, but this jacket won me over and will be in my pack for every trip.
