- Product Review (submitted on August 26, 2010):
The final test of this jacket was a three week over 5000 km. trip from Holland to Denmark and then by ferry to Iceland for a big inland all-road trip. Temperatures were between 30 and 90 `F, we had heavy downpours and a lot of wind. In every circumstance the jacket performed well and after my bike and I submerged in a glacial torrent both the jacket (and the Darien light pants) dried up amazingly fast. That's what I liked most about the combination: no liners and other fancy stuff that need ours of dry time after being soaked by all these deep river crossings. Less is more!
The jacket is perfect for travelling with all these pockets and an outstanding collar. The only minus is the lack of two completely waterproof pockets for cigarettes or passports and the lot.
