Handsome, but cheap and heavy.

Reviewed by Wodan from King's Canyon, CA on Thursday, May 24, 2012
I love how this jacket looks, but I got it for backpacking not for looks. My large clocked in on my postal scale at 1lb, 3oz. About a week after owning it, the button that anchors the base of the zipper fell off. That and the weight led me to return both this, and the Mountain Hardware rain pants which had the same buttons. The material that the jacket is made of seems sturdy enough, but I'm going going to trust wet, dirty velcro alone to prevent rain from getting through my zipper.
  • Best Uses: Around town or car campin
  • Cons: Buttons are cheap, Too heavy for backpacking
  • Pros: Athletic fit, Effective, Handsome
