featherweight rain protection
Light it is- 232g on my postal scale for my xl size. It is totally waterproof, the hood and sleeve adjusters hold well despite their small size (hook/loop dots). It is roomy enough for a bulky sweater or the like. Everything has obviously been designed for saving weight. As a result, I'd say it is probably a bit fragile, but in several wearings, I haven't experienced any damage to it. It has kept me totally dry in light but blowing rain. Although I don't know if this will affect the durability or longevity of this piece, but it's nice to see the finest stitching and taping quality on any outdoor equipment I've seen. I have another very lightweight shell that is similar, but it has no hand pockets, only a napoleon. This jacket has conventionally placed hand pockets, and while I don't think I'd put my hands in them in wet conditions, I'd sure put my keys and wallet in them.
