REI Shuksan Jacket with eVent Fabric - Men'sis rated1.0out of5by1.
Rated1out of5byRBKfromGoes 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.
