Product Description

One of our legendary pieces, the Microlight Jacket relies on 100-percent nylon mini ripstop for durable, lightweight weather protection. An outrageous price-to-performance ratio makes the Microlight a mainstay shell, with a full-coverage hood for inclement weather, an adjustable drawcord at the waist, and elasticized cuffs to seal out blowing rain. The PU coating lasts for years and the Microlight stuffs into its own self-fabric stuff sack for convenience.

Dan DaltonKeeps out the rain...

Voted 4/5

and wind and really cheap. I always pack a jacket like this on summer hikes and use this a lot for trail-running. Keeps out the rain well and wind is not an issue. Really cheap too!

gruntVery handy jacket

Voted 5/5

I gave this jacket 5 stars based on what it is: a lightweight jacket that will keep the wind and light rain off of you for a very good price. I've used mine hiking in wind and rain in the summer, and always take it with me when I travel. It gets a little wrinkled in it's stuff sack, but quickly shakes out, which is nice when traveling. Very durable, the material is also quiet.

keeps the rain out very nicely. Plus, its small so it packs good. Its cheap(price wise) and the quality is great. They run a little small too, I usually were a large or medium and an xl fits fine.... I would recomend to anyone!
