How annoying 🙄
Buddy John (1 month ago)
he spent the whole time blah"in and not any on the actual raingear,, wtf!
You could have simply showed each jacket and gave a scale of one to ten and price, with a little info on each jacket, pros and cons, shit... that would have been ten times better than this Albert Einstein review, which told us absolutely nothing about each jacket.

The most BIASED review I have ever seen here YouTube. This dude focused on one particular jacket which is the mountain hardware but completely left out the rest of the other ones. What kind of a review is this!? Plus you WASTED 9 minutes of my life all thru your blabbering nonsense....

What an absolute waste of 9 minutes and 11 seconds! there was no review. There was no systematic evaluation of the jackets. I'm sure 99% of the 375,426 views got duped into watching this because of the title. OK, I'm done, I've already wasted too much time on this video...

What’s a Wayne jacket?

Would have been nice to go over all of them, at least who makes them and how they did, rather then just talk about one of seven.

Almost, but not totally, useless. I did learn to look for molded zippers. But that's all.

WTF?? Weren't you supposed to review rain jackets??
Carolyn1229 (1 year ago)
I’m more confused than ever. Link to the article did not work. Why didn’t you hold the jackets up and give prices and where to buy info? You talked a lot but didnt say much.
Wanda Willoughby (1 year ago)
Why didn’t you review zpack
Aaron Hartje (1 year ago)
Two of the biggest BS term(s) when it comes to rain jackets: air permeability/breathability. Sooner or later, you're wearing a freakin' garbage bag. Get the cheapest/lightest one you can that has a few basic features you may prefer.

Thanks for telling us all that you've gone through. Showing us would be even better. Thanks.

i stopped after "light weight wain jacket".
sirvidia (2 years ago)
"breathability" is not necessarily connected to air permeability. it's usually connected to whether water vapour can pass through

At the time of this video I would have included the First Ascent BC-200 by Eddie Bauer. It is a 3 layer 11oz. shell that came in at MSRP of $199.

Have you reviewed Frogg Toggs and Cuben fiber jackets?
G Henrickson (2 years ago)
Wow...this was polished and professional yet gave me zero information from which to decide. Needs to be re-shot with a quick look at EACH jacket and its strong/weak points. Maybe hold the jacket up and talk about it. Thanks.

Which Mountain Hardware "Plasmic" jacket are you recommending? On their site, there is an "Alpen" and an "Ion" version. There is not one listed as "Superlight". Thanks.

Too long getting to the point, use the jackets more when saying the pros and cons. Watching paint dry my friend, clicked off.......gosh
Noah Mccurley (2 years ago)
Just buy a good quality offshore sailing jacket it's waterproof, windproof and all the zippers and seams are sealed
G Henrickson (2 years ago)
And heavy...way more than 10 or 12 ounces.
David Patten (2 years ago)
and 100% non breathable, you'd be a sweaty mess and die if you did anything labour intensive.

If you can afford to spend $250 or more for a jacket, I would highly suggest you spend 100 bucks more and get an Arc'teryx and here's why... a bullet proof warranty. I bought one 6 or 7 years ago and used it heavily and paid 300-400. This year the seams came apart because I never washed it or put it in the dryer. I thought this maintenance was counter-intuitive, because after all, it is a rain coat and I wasn't aware that it needed to be washed. I took it back to the same store I purchased it from 2 weeks ago and was expecting them to repair it for a hefty fee. I didn't have a receipt and I had paid cash so there was no record of my purchase. However, I received a call a couple of days ago and they said they would give me a new jacket,same color and make, in a larger size, for no charge...I picked it up today and like it better than the original.
Jose Hernandez (2 years ago)
Good in depth review of light rain jackets. I would suggest that you edit your videos to include close ups of the products your reviewing. Including video clips of how the jackets zip up, the texture, etc. helps us the consumers, that search for video reviews to assist in purchasing such products, make an informed decision on which product to purchase. Aside from that, thanks for putting this video together.

Just make sure Ya wear protection (horny little snigger alert) 😜
METALfanUSMC (3 years ago)
Good review. I also share your opinion on the better YKK molded style zipper preference due to performance. Smoother, easier movement and much better durability every time.
Friedrich Gerring (3 years ago)
helmet compatibility?
rob01244 (3 years ago)
PS. Also not a fan of the Neo Shell... it sucks in water like a sponge, after two hikes the claimed holy grail of fabrics let me down, it weighed almost double the original post hike due to water retention, its worse than my wife... I love the Arcteryx Alpha SV, yeah I know its a beast and not a comparable jacket but its the daddy for v bad weather :)

I returned the Plasmic after one use - its far too fragile, it tore in two places after only very light rock abrasions, great review though :) the DryQ Elite fabric that MH produce is rock solid and very breathable... the Plasmic is more of a theme park log flume jacket!!
Sodium Hydroxide (3 years ago)
hey people, if you came here a don't have much money. I would recommend one of the carhartt rain coats. I have one and love it.

Dude is long winded!!! dang!! let's argue about 2 damn ounces!!! not a big deal damn..if one that ways 16oz keeps me dryer than a 10 oz then I'll take the 16!!! that's why they make pot zips. The North Face Venture $99...beats all of these!!!

Sany Nava (3 years ago)
terrible review, this guy wanted to show off his know how more than the actual jacket themselves....waste of my time
Adam Rogers (3 years ago)
what are you mumbling about bro?
Gabe M (3 years ago)
extra 4 oz will break my back than i can take a leak and loose that 4oz
JT7868 (2 years ago)
+Gabe M It might when you're carrying all your camera gear and through hiking at AT, PCT, or any of these: http://www.backpacker.com/trips/wyoming/twelve-toughest-trails/ Saving 4 oz in one place, 2 oz in another, 3 oz in one more, etc really adds up and can make the difference between enjoying a difficult and long trail and not wanting to carry on.
Gabe M (3 years ago)
You think you can tell when the jacket is on you if it is 10 or 12 oz? lol
John Grytbakk (3 years ago)
Thank you for taking the time to be in-depth and covering the many different crucial points. ......so helpful in choosing the right gear.

Gare man (3 years ago)
wow......so wordy, get to the point, hold the jacket up, show it being tested outdoors. price limit sub $200, $300, etc would be nice.
Judiel Gonzalez (3 years ago)
I really don’t get it, I missed which one won? Never was presented to the camera, I never saw the jacket itself feature… what kind of review is this? The video overwhelm me with so much categories to judge a jacket that lost the real purpose of the same... which is the best raincoat for the money?

Judiel Gonzalez The only truely waterproof jacket you want is Paramo , forget the rest mate
tc1uscg (3 years ago)
+Judiel Gonzalez Me too. I got lost the discussion about the zippers and totally missed which one was a favorite. I assume it was the Mountain Gear?
