Outdoor Research Men's Foray Jacket
Super light, packable and down to business, the Outdoor Research Men's Foray Jacket provides the features and solid protection that adventures are made of. Designed in superior waterproof breathable 40D Gore-Tex PacLite fabric that is fully seam seal taped, this foul weather shell will keep you dry and comfortable from a hard downpour to a ridge ripping blizzard in a horizontal wind. Weighing just under a pound, the Foray has the durability for light mountaineering, alpine climbing, backcountry skiing, and takes the wear-and-tear of the trail in stride. Its double-sliding, water-resistant TorsoFlo zippers open from hem-to-bicep to allow for poncho-like ventilation when excess body heat needs an escape. This rain jacket also sports a double-separating front zipper with external storm flap for a dry weather tight seal and additional venting, while its deep designed dual-pull adjustable hood and dual drawcord hem adjustments allow for the perfect weather fit. A napoleon pocket, two hand pockets, and a zippered internal chest pocket that doubles as a stuff sack leave you with plenty of storage space. A straightforward design will all the performance bells or whistles, the OR Men's Foray Jacket works as hard as you, and packs down tight once the weather breaks.

Lightweight and waterproof.
This is my first Outdoor research product. I have always heard good things about them so I figured what the heck. For the price of this sghell it has alot of features found only in higher priced shells. I was very eager to test how waterproof this shell was. Living in Illinois in January means an occasional wet snow or two. I was at a jobsite surveying when it started to snow. I had the Foray shell in my car so I gave it it's first bath. I sat outside for three hours in a heavy wet snow. This jacket performed flawlessly. The paclite Goretex shed water like no other. It was pretty cold out but with a heavy weight fleece underneath, I stayed plenty warm. I cannot comment on the breathibility as of yet but, the full length zippers on the sides of this jacket have me pretty convinced that it will do just fine. Overall, this shell seems like a great buy. The quality of the product prompted me to buy on of their sombrero's as well! I can't wait to try these bad boys out in the Boundary waters this summer!!

Great Rain Jacket
I wear it when needed (raining). I really like the full pit zips for ventilation and the adjustable hood. It is very light weight and well made. You can't go wrong with OR. Altrec is a great place to buy.

I bought this rain jacket recently for my job as a landscaper. I needed a rain jacket that could withstand bad weather, mud, thorns, and general abuse. It rained most of last week, and so far there's no evidence of any ripping or loss of waterproofness. Gore-Tex feels light weight yet durable. Also, the pockets are big enough to hold my work gloves and clippers. Overall, I'm extremely satisfied with my purchase.

Have used it for a while now. Seam and zips are well made and the water resistance have been holding up well. it folds nicely when not in used and can be compressed. It fits true to size. the side zipper are interesting although i must say i have not find it that useful for me.

Great Rain Gear
Surviving in torrential downpours and went snow. This jacket is the bomb. Kept me dry and able to vent to cool off if to warm. Packs so small , about the size of a nalgene container. Stash it in your pack for those unexpected events !
