A seam-sealed, lightweight, and packable 2.5-layer waterproof rain jacket.
While some situations call for a weather-resistant, heavy-duty shell that stands up to briars, brush and abrasion, our Swiftwater Rain Jacket is engineered for active uses that require lightweight, waterproof protection that can be pulled out in an instant.
The Swiftwater weights under fourteen ounces and packs into tight spaces, so it’s easy to stow in a backpack pocket or an upland hunting vest. The 2.5-layer shell fabric is constructed with tough, yet lightweight 3.8-oz. ripstop nylon with a waterproof membrane laminated to its interior. The half-layer is a mesh grid printed on the interior that protects the membrane from abrasion and wear. Though light in weight, the Swiftwater is fully seam-sealed to provide heavy-duty protection in the wettest conditions. During active, high-exertion use, breathability is just as important as waterproofness, because wet is wet, regardless of where the moisture comes from. The Swiftwater’s waterproof membrane is full of microscopic pores that allow vapors and heat to escape, yet keep out rain and snow.
To ensure that water stays on the outside, water-resistant AquaGuard® zippers from YKK® are used throughout. The front zipper features an interior storm flap and zipper garage to prevent neck-pinching. The Swiftwater is cut with plenty of room to add layers underneath in frigid weather, and boasts a two-way drawcord-adjustable hood to help seal out wind and water. Velcro®-adjustable cuffs provide a custom fit. For ease of storage, the Swiftwater is so compact it can be quickly rolled up into its hood.
The Swiftwater Rain Jacket – waterproof and breathable rain and snow protection in a superlight shell that’s ready to pull out of your pack when the weather takes a turn.
