Merrell Windswept Jacket - Women's

Product Details

When the wind's swirling through the downtown alleyways and the rain is blowing sideways, the Merrell Windswept Women's Jacket is a godsend. Merrell's known for its all-weather footwear, but the Windswept's M Select XDRY waterproof and breathable membrane, DWR finish, and fully taped seams keep your body as dry as your feet, without causing you to feel clammy or uncomfortable. The Windswept reaches down to the knees, so windblown rain won't be able to sneak up into your cozy cocoon, and has a fixed hood that keeps your hair dry and head warm when the weather's at its worst. Drawcords at the hem and waist increase weather resistance and give the Windswept a tailored look, while the ribbed cuffs and collar trap heat and feel soft against your skin. As a final travel-friendly detail, Merrell included six pockets--two flap hand, two zip hand, and two secure internal--for phones, passports, and important travel documents.

Price : $229.95

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!
