Hello

The coming season and I'm looking for a new top coat to protect me from the rain and wind.
The routes for which I need the coat are thousands, Nepal and PCT.

Basically, I'm torn between two options: either two separate layers hardshell-trophy and a raincoat.

The most important functions are breathing ability and, of course, low weight.

I did some research on the net and couldn't decide. There are too many pros and cons all constellations (rstiliot 2 layers opposite comfort of one layer and lower weight and breathing)
The budget is around $ 300.

If it looked toward hardshell-arcteryx alpha sl\beta fl the first with zips and other pit made of Gore-Tex as breathing right now.
Is there anything better?

If it is 2 layers of thought about arcteryx squamish marmot super mica with.

What is your opinion?
Thank you

Really nice question.

First of all, feel good, you're in good company. The question troubling many are hiking and climbing in the world.

I can tell you that if you keep fussing about the trips honestly, I guess I have some rdalim and some wind jackets.
The desire to explore new things and new materials are often the decisive will to save budget.

But we're not dealing with the future, but what is happening here and now.
So let me ask you a question: what does a raincoat? Isn't that the definition of startairing for that matter. I think when you say a raincoat you mean 100 percent opaque water and breathe you even put an opaque layer as protection against rain and not stew in your own sweat to lower your minimum activity requirement?

Some people when they say a slicker going into something cheap and completely sealed not supposed to breathe too. A kind of צה"לית storm suit.

I don't like these coats, don't think it's professional to use one. Not just because he's not the indaf sweat (not breathing), but because these overcoats usually just uncomfortable and sector. I'm the same people who are willing to forgo many things, but not for comfort.

I think it's certainly possible to buy quality startairing and use it as an all weather trench coat (snow) and about how to make a jacket to wind and of course another very warm layer (weight unfortunately) you can enter the system of multi-layer dressed in those days really.
For that matter, that's what I'm doing right now nashiti.
I feel compelled to point out that aardshlim make you pay by weight and evaporation capability but they give something to wind-jacket self-confidence. If you are sure your opacity of the ardshl you can cope successfully with rain, snow and wind.


The other trophy protects you in almost all situations to those extreme situations of rain or snow, but do it in a lower weight and breathing ability can't compete with.
You could say that quality wind jacket can be useful in more situations. Want to say the first thing you think about when you're wearing the strenuous activity startairing (and I don't plan on relaxing walk on a flat trail) when you can already download it.
Yes, I can definitely say that no material hasn't caused anyone to say wow the ardshl breathing. There are many network talk about evaporation capacity of E-VENT but remember it still a membrane attached to the nylon layer 100%.
Until some new fabric will be (NEOSHEL?) is the triideof-protection against weather for ability.



In conclusion, now when this happens I think only added to the chaos. Like you said, and there were large differences, especially on this issue. I think the law of specificity also applies.
Both work well in many situations, but of course you're interested in what works best in a given situation. Therefore you should know exactly what conditions you encounter and make ad hoc decision before embarking on an adventure.

I think your head is already running that way naturally.
Do I go somewhere dry and I'm going to go hard and fast on cold mountain range (range = draft always cold) and base layer trophy
Do I go somewhere with rain/snow or unknown weather-probably to take the ardshl.

I personally prefer maximum modularity. Me more convenient to separate good sofustel let me rain and wind protection and freedom of movement likely grow, along with a raincoat/nihasit. easy on startairing.
Even better price wise.

There is something but it just not baseless.
Real rain as I knew him-one fabric comes with a frozen-nothing can really stop. But startairing could at least try.

But I do agree with the idea of buying easy startairing (some models considering less than 300 grams) and make it to the sky when actually needed. The rest of the time it is folded.

Definitely interesting coat of Montane. For 320 grams get quality EVENT jacket say that he breathes, a helmet hoodie. Note that writing a review that doesn't seem particularly resistant.

About the coat from the review NEOSHELL, and weight (1.000 g but there is no sense to me)
Many nyoshl amaili I saw were relatively heavy.

Don't know if I said it, I wasn't buying clothing and textiles materials network, it's important that equilibrium also important but above all match!
