The Rain Shadow has excellent features. The sizing is generous and the cut is long, and it has a deep, volume-adjustable hood which swivels easily with head movement and a nice high collar and soft chin guard. It performs well, and although the fabric isn’t as breathable as some, it will keep you dry, it’s lightweight, and it packs down easily. It has deep pockets, although they’re a bit low for easy access when wearing a pack. Venting is provided through two large pit-zips.
Men’s version: Yes
