Golite Phantasm

This lightweight waterproof jacket from Golite is a loose fit, but a good length in the arms and hem. The cuffs offer just about enough adjustment and the collar is fairly comfortable, even without a fleece chin guard. A lovely, simple design with minimal features. Light and a little flimsy, but will keep you dry even in big storms. The hood’s good, and the Paclite fabric breathes well. Mesh-lined pockets double up as vents.

Verdict: If you want minimal and light, this could be the jacket for you. It has a no-frills design that offers the bare essentials, but comes with a good hood and mesh venting pockets.
