Rated4out of5byhiker-bellefromGreat Rain JacketThis is a great backpacking rain jacket. I am planning to use this to replace my old light backpacking jacket that was not waterproof after getting soaked on my last trip. I haven't put it to the test yet but it is light enough to pack and EXTREMELY warm (be prepared to sweat). I think it will work extremely well when it is cold as a shell as well as in the rain. I didn't realize that the accelerator model had a lining before I bought this jacket but I'm happy with my purchase because this jacket is definitely warm enough without a lining! Its cute and functional - can't get much better than that! I usually wear a small jacket and ordered a small and it fits just fine - the shoulders and arms are a little puffy but there's enough room to wear a layer or two underneath (if its cold enough...) so I can't complain.
