View Full Version : Best three season jacket

03-21-2015, 13:43
I am ready to buy a new three season rain jacket/outer layer. My requirements:
-water repellent
-packable (not ultralite, but lighter than my 10 year old Goretex 2 pounder!)
-pit zips
-Sold by REI (I have a gift card and dividend check totaling $200, which will defray or cover the cost).

I hike the AT 2x per year, in April and in November, on the southern third of the trail for 60-70 miles at a time.
I really like what I read about arcteryx.

Anybody have any thoughts?
