What’s in a name? Everything in this case. The watertight lives up to a big promise, delivering top-notch rain protection in the worst conditions. Micro porous Omni-tech fabric breathes to let body heat escape while sealed seams ensure that the elements stay where they belong. Light and packable, the watertight is just as perfect for hard-core hiking as it is for keeping you comfortable on soggy soccer-league sidelines. Curved seams give this jacket a streamlined fit – an adjustable storm hood protects you when the waterworks reach an apex and a drawcord at the hem keeps wind at bay.

Not as durable or breathable as I was hoping This jacket is very water-resistant. So far, in a few downpours it has not let any water through. It is not as breathable as I was hoping, but it is much more breathable than PVC and many other rain-coats. It has been tolerable to wear, with a bit of sweat through about 55°-60°F Above about 65°-70°F I found myself sweating in this unless it was raining, which seemed to facilitate a cooling feel to this jacket.It is very windproof, once zipped up. In fact, with the mediocre breath-ability, I find myself opening the cuff closures and unzipping the jacket a bit, so I don’t feel like I’m over-heating.There is no insulation in this jacket (as I was aware before my purchase). I found it a bit strange to feel cooler wearing the jacket (alone) in colder weather than if I was not wearing it at all – it seems to have a cooling effect when not paired with an under-layer. Pairing this jacket with just one layer of hood-shirt or sweater made the combination effective…
