Perfect for an epic climb to basecamp, a rigorous day of alpine touring, a fast push on snowshoes. The REI Shuksan jacket with eVent™ fabric has an updated, smooth-operating front zipper.

  • eVent fabric has a unique membrane structure that allows sweat vapor to easily escape to the outside of the fabric
  • No matter how hard you work, overheating is unlikely due to this Direct Venting™ Technology
  • And because you remain dry on the inside, the likelihood of an uncomfortable, post-exercise chill is eliminated
  • eVent technology works so efficiently, no pit zippers are needed; all seams are sealed for complete waterproof protection
  • Embedded Recco® relector enhances radio signals from search-and-rescue Recco detectors for quicker acquisition of position in an avalanche
  • Integrated, helmet-compatible hood is drawcord adjustable to provide unhindered peripheral vision; drawcord system also ensures a good fit to a bare or hatted head
  • New 2-way, water-resistant front zipper operates smoothly and lets you adjust fit and venting
  • Features adjustable hem drawcord and snow-resistant rip-and-stick cuff tabs
  • 2 mesh-lined front pockets are placed to clear hipbelt; also features 2 mesh-lined chest stash pockets that double as vents
  • 2 inner stretch-mesh pockets are large enough to comfortably hold skins or a water bottle; 1 has an earphone cord port
  • Shuksan is windproof to 60 mph
  • Please note: to keep weight and bulkiness to a minimum, this backcountry jacket does not include a powder skirt
  • Care instructions: machine wash warm with detergent, rinse twice; a warm dryer will rejuvenate the water-repellent finish

REI Shuksan Jacket with eVent Fabric - Men'sis rated1.0out of5by1.
Rated1out of5byfromGoes downhill quicklyI've used the jacket to ski, hike, and for general wet weather over the past 4-5 years. At first I loved it since it was waterproof, breathable, stretched well, and fit well. Admittedly I may have been so in love with it because it was my first higher-end light-weight jacket. Unfortunately, over time it has become much less waterproof. I've followed the cleaning and ironing instructions to a tee, but now the jacket cannot even repel the lightest snow. My clothes under the jacket get wet almost immediately. So, the jacket started out great but the waterproof coating deteriorated much quicker than it should have for a $200+ jacket. I will not buy another jacket with eVent fabric from REI or elsewhere.
