The Marvel Comics-ish named Super Light Plasmic Jacket is incredibly light (less than 8 oz!), waterproof and feels great next to your skin. If you’ve ever wanted to invest in an honest-to-goodness premium rain shell but questioned whether it’s worth the money … it is. This jacket is about as close as you can get to feeling as though you’re not even wearing one. And it packs down ridiculously small – about the size of a baseball. Ideal for travelers, particularly of the minimalist adventurer variety.
On the tech spec side – features include MH’s “Dry.Q™ EVAP’s innovative system of channels that disperses moisture for faster evaporation, improved breathability and a drier interior feel without pit zips. AquaGuard® VISLON® water-resistant front zip”.
