Sierra Designs Elite Cagoule Jacket - Men's

Product Details

Sierra Designs set out to develop a better performing rain jacket with its Men's Elite Cagoule Jacket. Weighing only six ounces, this lightweight jacket won't weigh you down whether you're backpacking or day hiking, but it provides exceptional protection from the rain for when you're on the move. The idea behind the Elite Cagoule is that active ventilation will always outperform a waterproof, breathable membrane, so the jacket features multiple open vents to keep you cool and, more importantly, dry from the inside out. The unique Awning vents at the underarms are always open to keep air constantly flowing through the jacket, while the hip belt vent allows your backpack waist strap to pass under the jacket, so water will still roll off the front of the coat. Pass-through openings allow your hands to access pockets on your mid-layer, and the deep chest opening can be opened or closed through hook and loop tabs to allow huge amounts of air to pass through when you're working up a sweat. The Cagoule is designed to be worn with the Sierra Designs Elite Rain Chaps for head-to-toe waterproof protection in the backcountry.

Price : $128.95

Rain Jacket Checklist

Rubber is for Tires : Don't even think about getting a rubber rain jacket. Why? Read below..
Get a Rain Jacket That Breathes! Unless you enjoy being wet in your own perspiration, get a rain jacket that breathes, letting your sweat escape.
Go Gore-Tex. There are a number of different fabrics that keep rain out but let your sweat escape. But, the best is still Gore-Tex.
Packable? If you plan on taking your rain jacket into the boonies, make sure it's packs down tightly and into a small package. The best ones are those that "fold" into their own pocket.
Three Jackets in One! By getting a good Gore-tex rain jacket that is also packable, you now have a jacket for wet weather, windy weather and cool weather. So congratulations!
