    Awesome Jacket - 6/22/2015

    I purchased this jacket last month, it came just in time. I was caught in a freak rain storm a threw it on. Kept me dry, fit is perfect and drys quick with a few shakes. It packs really well. Once the rain stopped I folded it up and put it back in the large pocket on my Ovis sling pack.

    Good light weight jacket. Not tried yet in a downpour but worked well in slow rain. Would buy again. Good value for the price.

    Nice little rain jacket - 6/2/2015

    I was worried that the jacket would be too hot during the summer, but it was nice and light to wear! The material states it is breathable, but i haven't had time to test how breathable it is. My only drawback is that this jacket does not have many pockets.

    Just used this jacket last weekend in an all day downpour. Worked flawless. Didn't get wet at all! Impressed by the weight and packability. Looks great off the river also. Love the jacket!

    Great Jacket - 5/12/2015

    Lightweight and feels robust and well made. Packs away small enough to be no hinderance. Just what I neded for the occasional downpour or a light wind proof layer. Two of my pals have bought the same after seeing it and they are just as impressed. Good value too when you compare it to other brands.

    Great jacket, It does pack very easily but I used this jacket the first time out fishing It kept me dry as advertised. Very light and breathable. It doesn't have a Goretex liner but it definitely keeps you dry.

    I wanted a 100% waterproof, ultra light weight jacket for use during my work travels as well as for on the river... This product answered both of my desires perfectly. The ability to stuff it into my fishing vest or briefcase without taking up valuable space is paramount... Great jacket
