Features per manufacturer: Keep them dry: this fully waterproof shell keeps the rain and snow on the outside. The breathable Conduit laminate also let’s the body vapor escape so they’ll stay dry on the inside too. Abrasion-resistant nylon shell is lightweight and longwearing. Attached ergo hood for a close fit. Micro-chomois lined chin guard is soft and comfortable. DWR finish shed snow and water. Mesh lined pockets for ventilation. Articulated sleeves for mobility. Weighs 10 oz.
Findings: As it is still very much so winter in Alaska, we haven’t had a chance yet to trail test this coat. It does however have everything we like in a rain coat. It is very packable, has a hood that can be secured out the face and at least as far as our shower tests go, keeps you dry. We will certainly update this review come summer! But in the meantime, please check out the slide made by twelve year old Alisa.
