A classic nylon camping (and cycling) shell is mandatory as far as we’re concerned. There when you need it. Gone when you don’t. Built of a waterproof breathable shell fabric, we installed modern vent panels under the arms and at the back along with a light mesh lining. Deep zipper welt pockets ideally suited for secure storage (and self-packing). A curved and darted bottom hem with a +4” drop tail for functional coverage. And a hood that's double-layered for durability and extra water resistance…but mostly because hoods just look better when they have some thickness and can frame the face accordingly. You’re going to have to trust us on this one.
