Sierra Designs Pack Trench Coat - Women's

Product Details

When you're out on the trail and a rain storm blows in you basically have two options: take cover under the nearest tree (hoping there's no lightning), or keep on hiking and hope it will let up by the time you get to camp. Unless you have a decent rain jacket option B really isn't going to pan out too well for you, and that's where the Sierra Designs Women's Pack Trench Coat comes in. Designed to be worn with a backpack, this three-layer rain jacket provides ample ventilation at the underarms to keep you hiking comfortably, and it has a unique design that allows the hip belt of your pack to pass under the jacket, so you get additional protection from the rain. A low-profile hood lies flat against your head and is fitted with a stiff brim to make moisture roll from the hood. Two hand pockets stash a few trail goodies, and the adjustable cuffs and hem let you further customize the fit of the jacket to your liking.

Price : $158.95

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!
