Materials : I haven’t been able to learn of which flavor of Gore-Tex this is
Hanger loop – left and right chest upper chest pockets -left and right cargo pockets – hand warmer pockets – snaps on the inside fleece liner – zips and snaps in – draw pull under cargo pocket
Wider chest for maneuverability
Water resistant zippers
Hideaway Collar for Hood Storage
One of the best waterproof jacket bargains out there…as long as the weight of the jacket makes sense for you and the activity that you have planned.
Awesome price for excellent waterproof performance and wind blocking.
Robust set of features.
Excellent for cold weather- good for warm weather as long as you pay attention to the amount of exertion – this is a think heavy jacket and even though it is Gore-Tex you can sweat in this
True to military sizing- military articles are generally a bit larger than civilian made products
Heavy – there are MUCH lighter Gore-Tex jackets out on the market.
If you are hiking the AT, this isn’t the jacket for you. If you are out for an afternoon walk, perfect. With a product like this, it is all about the right place and right time….that is true with all products.
