Weight is very light.
I was surprised because it was very light first. The functionality is also perfect. Because the price is also low, we will recommend it. I will be able to spend the day of rain by this comfortably.

I love this jacket. I own 2, one Mushroom and one True Blue. Packs small and is super light. Perfect for outdoor activities and every day use. At 5'-6" and 140lbs the medium fits perfect.

Comfortable, breathes better than traditional rain gear. Wind-proof and waterproof through downpours. Thin, incredibly lightweight, and packs into its own pocket. Overall, it's the perfect rain jacket for long hikes or daily wear.

Never Leave Home Without It
Wow is this jacket fantastic! It's so unbelievably light and packs down so small I take it any time I travel. It's super stripped down to just the essential chest pocket and internal pocket for stuffing it into. Looking around at other brands no one even comes close to the quality and weight of this jacket. I wouldn't consider this a hard core backpacking jacket as it's so lightweight, but for urban travel, adventure travel and day hikes you cannot beat it.

Well made jacket
I needed a light weight waterproof jacket for a backpacking trip. This is a very well made jacket and amazingly light in weight. I was very happy with the performance of the jacket on my trip and would recommend this jacket when you're looking for a good light weight packable jacket.
