I live and hike in Oregon and I was looking for a good lightweight emergency rain jacket for those surprise cloudbursts that are so common in the Pacific Northwest. Normally I'm a Columbia gear person as they are local out here and I've always been pleased with their products. I couldn't really justify spending 50 plus dollars for something that I was just planning on having as an emergency back-up though. This jacket really fit the bill. It's extremely lightweight which is great for stuffing in a day pack, and if you buy one of the bright colored ones( I got the burnt orange) it can double as a safety device if your out during hunting season and it could be used as an emergency signalling device if the worst happens and you get stuck out in the wilderness and are awaiting rescue. All of that for around $25!!! I would have rated it a five, but I haven't had to use it out in the elements yet. I'm sure it will perform like a champ.
