Columbia Sierra Madre Shell

This general-purpose waterproof jacket weighs 414g (size 12); stylish mesh lining adds comfort; rollaway hood with volume adjuster; waterproof and breathable fabric.
But for this price you can get jackets with better fabric performance ratings; pocket access is easily obscured with rucksack belts; hood is not as good as others in price range; no map-sized pockets.

 

 

Verdict: It’ll keep you dry and looks stylish, but does not have the practical edge of similar-priced jackets.
