Solid, lightweight jacket

Reviewed by Ebars from Nh on Wednesday, June 8, 2016
This jacket is light! Material is thin, not for extended bushwhacking, but seems durable enough given the payoff. Havent tested it extensively but it seems to breath well, and sheds rain nicely. The DWR seems solid as well.

Fit: I'm 6' 205lbs 45" chest. I took the XL as I wanted a bit of extra coverage and for it to come below my pack hip belt. Fits well, except the arms are sized for an Orangutan. Rab seems to do this with some of their jackets. The velcro wrist tabs keep it from moving past my hands but there's a fair amount of bunched fabric.

Solid adjustment points on hood and hem. Nice deep hand pockets that double as vents. Overall great lightweight addition for backpacking and general use. I don't usually wear green but I really dig the apple color.
