Really kept me dry under rain


From Reece

from San Jose, CA

I got this today and its raining hard outside. Out from the package and tested, needless to say I am impressed! I would buy this product again. It is a soft shell, lightweight, so if its colder than 50F, i'd layer up. YMMV.

Ideal Jacket


From Action28

from Huntsville, AL

Great for lightweight rain jacket. Ideal for rainy locations.

Ideal for rainy weather but small hood


From LarsAttacks

from Germany

This is a nice lightweight rain jacket that fits perfectly. My normal size is M but I ordered it in L so that I can wear it over a sweater or something else.
It is perfect for rainy weather with temperatures between 55 and 75 F.
The pockets are nice and the quick access to a handgun is an interesting option if you need it.
One negative thing: the hood is not so roomy so your face will become wet while your hair keeps dry.

Sensible, waterproof and stylish


From Steven J the trail guy

from Johnson City, TN

As a trail runner and rock climber I'm always looking for products that make sense in the real world. This jacket fits the bill. Whoever designed it knew what outdoor enthusiasts are looking for--durable, breathable jackets that will kill the wind and keep out the rain. I have long arms, so the arms in this coat just barely fit, but I love everything else about it. I've already recommended it to my friends. This jacket is better thought-out than any I've tried before.

Love this jacket!


From Jim

from Orlando, FL

I am amazed at the comfort this jacket provides. I live in Florida and the heat, rain, and humidity make wearing an outer garment difficult. The first time I wore it I was amazed at the breathability, and water repellant aspects of the jacket. I also like the looks of it. I particularly like the quick release side panels for my sidearm. A great investment. Solid construction and I know I'll be using it for years to come.

Almost a 5 Star


From None

from Orcutt, CA

Would be a 5 Star product if it weren't for the white colored hood liner. Being a 5.11 Tactical product, this is kind of odd. We want a completely dark product. I have had to dye the inside of the liner. Having a white hood liner is like wearing white crew socks with a tactical uniform. Sticks out like a sore thumb.

Great Jacket


From Dave

from Manila Philippines

Only had this Jacket for 3 days and today the biggest Typhoon has hit The Philippines.. so being me I went out to test how good it was.. well I did not stay out long but the rain was so hard. and the jacket was wet but I stayed dry.. great test for it. love this jacket and would recommend it to anyone. it good for the warmer climates as it is very light and does not make you feel too warm.

Very Pleased!


From None

from Dallas, TX

Excellent fit. I expected monkey arm sleeve length, but no! So, if you have long arms, the sleeves might be too short for you. The hood attachment is very clever. I really like it a lot.

Almost perfect


From Tex

from San Antonio

Bought this for an outer shell with bonus for conceal carry. The torso seems a couple of inches short for me to feel confident I won't expose the weapon when bending over.

Good Buy


From Safeshooter

from Florida

Perfect for those Florida afternoon thunder showers!
