Product Description

The Outdoor Research Men's Celestial Rain Jacket weighs an impressively light 10.2oz without sacrificing important features like fully taped seams and side venting. Climbers love the high chest pockets that don't interfere with their harnesses, while backpackers like the TorsoFlo side zippers when they need to let in some more air to keep from overheating. The Celestial Jacket has a dual-pull adjustable hood which seals up tightly when you're battling through a storm. Water-resistant zippers eliminate the need for storm flaps, thereby eliminating excess weight.

huge OR fan anyway and bought my wife this jacket for a trip into the Bugs once I discovered she did not have a light and bomber rain layer for climbing. Everything she had was too heavy to haul up technical routes. Every year, I become more weight sensitive and this jacket pacifies that sensitivity coming in at 10.2oz, yet has Gore Tex PacLite which really beads up the rain. She loves it (just don't cross any barbed wire fences with it on!) and watch that textured limestone.
