The Curated Take

This is not the most expensive or the cheapest waterproof jacket on the market. However, it does exactly what it is designed to do, which is to be lightweight, easily packable, and keep the wearer dry and comfortable to stay out on the water longer. This jacket is perfect for the backcountry angler that needs something quick to don when the wet stuff starts coming down.

Joseph Smith tested this product

This is the ideal jacket for a person looking for a rain jacket that can be easily stowed in a pack. The durable water repellent finish on the jacket repels water. The 20K waterproof rating and the 30K breathability rating will keep the wearer comfortable in those situations that require a rain jacket.

Pros
  • Lightweight, packs easy
  • Easy access pockets
  • waterproof and windproof
Cons
  • Lightweight and will not provide significant warmth
