Patagonia Piolet Rain Jacket - Men'sis rated4.5out of5by2.
Rated5out of5byfromGreat Rain Jacket!I have owned this jacket for a year and I thought that this would be a good time to review its performance. Overall, an outstanding jacket that performed as expected with only two downsides. I wore this jacket biking, walking and hiking through the 2012-2013 rainy season in and around Portland, skiing and snowshoeing on Mt. Hood and on a winter excursion into the Sierras last February. The first con was the front zipper which took almost 6 months to finally break in. From day one the zipper was very difficult to get started and would often miss-zip, but it got better over time and now it's easy as pie. The second con is the velcro. I was initially pretty excited about the new tighter looped velcro. I thought that it would be more durable than the old fuzzy loop velcro. This is unfortunately not the case. The velcro on the front closure of the jacket gets the most wear and after just one year it only has ~25% of the sticking power that it did when it was new. The velcro on other areas of the jacket that get less wear are still in good shape, but I'm going to have to get the front closure velcro replaced. I'll let you know how that works out. The jacket performed very well in wet conditions. Mushroom hunting in the pouring rain on the west face of Mount Hood and digging a snow cave in the Mokelumne Wilderness were no match for this Jacket. Even though the outer shell was soaked, I was still dry and the jacket continued to vent well. Ascending Round Top in Carson Pass last February in 25 knot winds with temperatures between 15 and 20 degrees, I was warm and the wind did not penetrate the shell. The jacket is roomy enough inside to comfortably layer for cold weather excursions. I love how the cinch cords are sealed and protected from the elements, no leaks where the cords penetrate the shell of the jacket. The brim of the hood sheds water well on its own, but performs better if you wear a hat with a brim underneath to reenforce its shape. The self sealing zippers on the exterior facing pocket do not leak and the the flannel lining in the left and right hand pockets stay nice and dry. So far I can't see any visible wear on the shoulders or back panel from where my back pack makes contact. I would definitely recommend this jacket to a friend, in fact, I already have. It's a great cold and wet season jacket.

Rated4out of5byfromGood jacketMy first review, my first real rain jacket so I don't have anything to compare it to. However, this is a good quality 2 layer gortex jacket. I knew I wanted it when I first saw it and tried it on, helped make my decision easier when it was on sale.
