Berghaus Paclite

A little longer in the hem than some jackets tested. The three-way hood adjustment was spot-on and so were the Velcro cuffs. With a deep hood and semi-stiffened peak, this felt great in bad weather with excellent pockets that double as vents. Not as breathable as some.

A wonderful waterproof at a great price. The longer cut will suit those who prefer a more traditional style, and the deep rollaway hood is one of the best around.
