Good Pack Jacket

Reviewed by slc-az from Arizona on Thursday, May 30, 2013
This is not a jacket that gets worn much in my world. It will live in a pack until we are caught out hiking in the rain. For this purpose, it appears to be perfect as it is very lightweight. The inside is coated and the seams are taped, so it should be fine for keeping the rain off me. I have no experience with that yet, and may not for a while, as I live in a desert! I am very glad that I ordered an extra large, even though I wear a 12. It runs small, IMO, as you will want to put it on over another layer or two, depending on where you are. It is attractive and I love the color (lLipstick), but I am a little concerned that it will not hold up that well for the next 20 or 25 years, like my old EMS rain gear did. My fear is that being balled up and squeezed in a pack pocket may cause the inner surfaces to stick together. Only time will tell on that score. It is made in China (perhaps that's why an XL fits like a L) and even though I can't really put my finger on why, it LOOKS like it was made in China! I sincerely hope it lasts a number of years for me or I will review this product again!
