Nearly Perfect Jacket

Having previously owned a Oracle jacket, which is made of the same shell material, I can attest to the waterproofedness and breathability of this piece of gear. I love this jacket, I really do, but I have two problems with it. I was looking for a jacket with 'pack pockets,' those nice chest height pockets for your hands. This is advertised as having those. And while the zippers are certainly at the right height, the pocket itself extend to the bottom of the jacket, which is just awkward. The ONLY other issue I have with it is my fault for not reading the description closely enough, but it is a minor qualm: there is no chest pocket for gear, but a sleeve pocket instead. That pocket isnt nearly as useful for chapstick or other gear as the chest one is, but hey this thing is WICKED LIGHT by not having too many features.

Great Jacket

Bought the Aegis to use for cycling, hiking, spring skiing, and general around-town wear. Have cycled with it in NW downpours and cool-but-dry weather. Water from the outside has not gotten in. Water vapor from the inside has mostly gotten out. It is definitely more breathable than other jackets I have used for cycling or skiing. This jacket's breathability seems to be near-equal to GoreTex and EVent jackets I was considering yet it cost substantially less.
The hood is big enough to fit over a cycling or ski helmet, turns with my head, and does not obscure my peripheral vision. Zippers operate well with one hand and don't snag. I'm 6'0", 205 lbs. Large size fits. Sleeves long enough, body loose enough to wear over sweaters, length is fine, though front is definitely shorter than the back. It's also very light and packable.

I am an OCD researcher when it comes to gear. I settled on this jacket over the Arc'teryx Alpha SL, Marmot Nano, and Stoic Vaporshell. This was the only jacket thas was under a pound, had pit zips, and pockets. The Stoic has no pockets or pit zips, the Arc'teryx has pockets but no pit zips, and the Nano also has no pit zips.
I have recently tested it on a 4 day trek around Catalina Island, and it did awesome! The fabric is super breathable which was almost a down fall. We had super high winds and this is definitely not a wind stopper, but it will keep you dry.
Overall, for the price and features, you can't beat it!

I have had this jacket for quite some time now. I live on the Oregon Coast and have put this product to the test. I am 6'3" 195lbs but I went with an XL. I chose this size so I could put many layers on underneath. I am glad I went with the XL except the jacket is a little to roomy on the warmer rainy days.I would disagree with those that say this is not a breathable jacket. I have used this hiking/backpacking/cycling in the rain and jacket breathes as much as I would expect a RAIN jacket to breathe. As far as hiking in the sun I wouldn't know as I wouldn't be wearing this.

I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend. He hikes on Isle Royale Island every year and needed a rain jacket. He hikes in the wilderness for a week and uses only what he can carry. When he got back, he said this coat was a life-saver. The best rain jacket he has ever had! The temps up there can vary and he said he was warm and dry the entire time. My mum, who walks every morning, also has one in purple and wears it whenever it rains. She loves it as well. I am waiting for them to buy me one so I can be part of the Marmot club!

Fantastic shell! It’s kept me dry in snow and rain from Texas to the AT. It’s lightweight, breathable, and the pit zips keep the sweat from hanging around. The hood fits over a climbing helmet perfectly. My only complaints are the cuffs are a little hard to cinch down, and the drawstrings on the hood can be hard to use with gloves on. Plus, the arm pocket is useless. I would have preferred a chest pocket, or one on the interior of the jacket. I’m 6’3” and 180 pounds, and the large fits me wonderfully.

The MemBrain Strata material is super breathable, much more so than Paclite jackets that I've owned. Very light weight and packs small, huge front pockets and underarm vents, great arm movement and a comfortable collar. It's pretty baggy around the waist but it still hangs well. It would be nice to have an inner pocket since it only has the two fronts and a shoulder pocket. Worth spending the extra bucks on this one if you're also looking at the PreCip.

After a few days of owning it, I decided to try this jacket out on the slopes. It kept me nice and dry and the wind out while I was snowboarding in ~30 degree temps. With a light puff jacket underneath, I was burning up. I do wish it had a chest or internal pocket. The fit is great too. I'm 5'5 & 130lb, and small fits perfectly. I'm very glad I got the last small "Bright Grass".

It's a great all around jacket. The pit zips work and if your still hot, unzip the pockets and let the air pass though the mesh pockets. I've worn it in several downpours and didn't experience any noticeable leaks in the seams. I love the stow away hood feature which is really nice when your not using it. My only wish would be an internal zipped pocket, but, that's just me..

Love the jacket kept me dry/warm after a full-day and night at a fall music fest in the ozarks. Forgot some gear at home on a trip and lived in it for three days. It's Holding up well after several camping trips - I'm sure I'll need to reapply some water repellent coating at some point but haven't needed to yet - packs tight & light -great addition

Neutral Reviews:

I use this for rain/wind protection on light hiking. It's more than adequate for that but it does not breathe well. Opening armpit zips helps with back/sides but doesn't do anything for shoulder perspiration. If the weather never goes to rain, just stays very humid, the fabric breathability seems to become even worse - and it makes me more wet than going without the jacket.

Great jacket for daily use

The jacket was good for stopping wind and light rain from car to building. But when I took it out in a driving cold rain, my baselayer was wet up to my elbows. The jacket looked good, fit well in the arms (I am 6'4") and was a bit generous in the chest/midsection (I am 175 lbs)
