Excellent lightweight waterproof jacket
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 19 January 2019
I was pleasantly surprised with this jacket and how well it performs, given the budget price tag. I have worn it in several heavy showers and have remained perfectly dry. The breathability out performs some higher end jackets I have, and not once has this coat got damp on the inside, even after prolonged use and after running.
The fabric is incredibly thin and lightweight but also very hardwearing. I agree with other users about the pockets letting it down. I find the rear entry pocket design tends to gape open when walking. A popper or velcro strip would have been good idea. I felt mean dropping a star for this as I am so impressed with the material.
I purchased the Magma Orange colour as I fancied a change from the usual black. It is just as shown in the image and also bright enough to improve visibility when walking/running at night. I am a pretty standard medium size and this fits perfectly.
I am so impressed with the jacket that I might be taking this on my next hike, around the SW Coast Path, as it is lightweight and performs excellently.
Little tip: Following use, zip it up and pop it in the dryer on low for about 5 minutes, and it comes out like new.
