Good cheap packable waterproof probably not very breatheable

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Nick farm worker/skier from ME on Saturday, November 28, 2015
I buy these jackets every few years for backup or emergency rain or wind protection for spring summer early fall. I think the marmot is the best in this style for price and quality. Inevitably I end up using the jacket more when another piece of gear breaks down, and in a working environment outdoors this style jacket is not long for the world. Good emergency layer but not durable for rough activities. Has pit zips, but no longer has the back vent as did older models. I consider these style jackets disposable and prefer to buy this than an expensive very thin "breathable" hardshell layer that will tear immediately.
