- Excellent Price on top notch rain running wear. Review by Brian
Price Value Quality
The stretch exterior fabric is comfortable and repeals water extremely well. The fabric on the inside of the jacket is comfortable without adding any weight. The 2.5 layer approach drops the mesh inside layer for a textured backing on the waterproof membrane. I was not sure how I would like this feel wise, but I am a convert. I especially like the sleeve ends on the jacket for comfort and style. I bought the XL Jacket because my 200lbs + frame is just too much in the chest for Large. I usually struggle with the sleeve length on this size. But the Extra stretchy sleeve ends with hidden thumb holes are a great solution for variable arm length. This jacket breaths better than several non-waterproof 1/2 zip pullovers (Nike, Adidas). I had virtually no sweet on my base layer after this run. Also, after several wears there is no sweet smell - another test of breathability.
There is no hood. So make sure you have a good waterproof cap. Personally, I am not a big fan of hoods, so I am happy with this.
For all these reasons this get's all 5s. Only time will tell how the exterior fabric's water repealing ability holds up and how sturdy the inner lining will be. But I am extremely hopeful. (Posted on 11/11/2016)
