Great deal for a packable Goretex coat. $187.99 Hard to find Goretex for under $300. I was looking for a packable Goretex for a trip to Peru and found this deal.

$187.99
Edit: Turns out this jacket is on sale on Mountain Hardwares site for $ 144.98 CAD Ugh... I don't think The Last Hunt refunds either?

Good price on the Mountain Hardwear Exposure ($290 elsewhere) but it looks like only a chest pocket, I guess hence can pack down lite. I have the Minimalist for $129.99, good all around basic Goretex jacket.

I got the minimalist jacket last week for under $90 with tax at Altitude Sports, after the $15 for $30 Alti dollars donation and the triple membership discount

I have an older generation of this jacket and I love it. It's minimum, but keeps you dry and packs extremely well!

The chest pocket is big enough to put in a wallet. There are pockets on either side to allow you to put your hands in and is quite roomy. Enough to put your cellphone in. Unfortunately, there are no pockets inside the jacket.

Ummm...a bit more specifically Gore-Tex membranes are used in waterproof-breathable garments, so it generally keeps water out, but lets moisture/sweat escape from your body so you do not get soaked when wearing (theoretically).

It's usually guaranteed for life of the product, so if you have failures, either the vendor or Gore-Tex will reimburse/replace your gear.

There are other competing technologies that work similarly (e.g. eVent), so read reviews

Anybody have recommendations for a 3-layer Gore Tex jacket? I understand they hold up better and may have higher performance. I am aware of Arc'teryx AR and MEC Synergy jackets. Looking for similar offerings (at a lower price!).

Outdoor Research has sales now and then. They shouuuuuuld have a 50% off sale in november... I believe it's a seasonal thing with them. I really like their gear, and the warranty is the best out of outdoorsy clothing companies.
Can you spare some cutter, me brother?

+1 for Outdoor Research. Ive used their lifetime warranty without any issues. Quality products, I put them up there on par with patagonia, and more affordable than arcteryx.
PS not all goretex is equal.

Yea i've found that paclite is pretty terrible at anything other than urban use. Just got a second hand goretex pro jacket the other day i'll be testing for hiking.

Very important even if you're just walking around in the jacket unless you want to feel sweaty.

Goretex requires a temperature difference to transfer moisture. With the pit vents open, that process is disrupted. That particular jacket is goretex active, which is a pretty darn thin material. I can't speak to how effective or breathable it is, but if I remember correctly that's why they didn't add pit zips (also cuts a little weight).

I always go for things with pit zips, but i'm a sweaty hog of a person. They're good for when you want that extra layer and need breathability, but not useful if it's more than a drizzle.

Is this normal for this type of jacket? My previous mountain hardware jacket kept water beading for *much* longer
Every jacket loses its DWR coating eventually. Some seem to lose it faster than others. Probably has to do with the outer material?

Google how to wash and restore water repellency for Goretex using the drier. I do it for my work coat every few months

How would this layer over an arcteryx puffy and fleece?
