Price

If you’re looking for a lightweight, highly waterproof rain jacket, the Marmot Bantamweight Jacket is worth a look. It features 2.5-layer Pertex Shield(r) fabric for reliable protection. It also has adjustable hood and hem settings, so you can adjust the fit just as needed. Plus, it’s lightweight and packable, making it a perfect choice for a day out on the lake or in the mountains.

Another lightweight option is the REI Co-op’s XeroDry GTX jacket, which uses the same Gore-Tex Paclite technology. This version is less expensive and weighs 12.5 ounces less. However, the REI version has a lower weather protection rating and fewer pockets. Moreover, the cheaper face fabric makes it susceptible to getting out and thus less durable.
