Rated 4 out of 5 by from great jacket! Purchased this jacket last week. I wanted it for backpacking. I've hiked three times with my backpack on and the jacket is great. Is definitely waterproof. Tested that in the shower! Perfect. I didn't give it five stars because there is no pocket for the hood so you end up rolling it into the jacket when it's not raining. Other than that i really like the jacket and especially the color.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A lot less neon than advertised Product pictures and video are misleading: Style is not as frumpy and color is subdued, not neon as advertised. Hood is awkward, big and loose but not helmet compatible. Fabric is very thin/light. Could benefit from a two-way zipper. Pit zips unnecessary. High price point for what it is.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Far, So Good I've not been able to put this jacket to field test re waterproofing. It appears to be well made and is stylish. Cuff closure is much better than The North Face jacket for those of us with small wrists. Wish it had additional pocket...chest or inside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rainy hikes, long flights, all in style Recently purchased this for a rain jacket show-down. I wanted a rain jacket that looked more stylish and felt more comfortable than your standard fare. I compared the Knife Edge (Gore-tex PacLite) to the REI Stormreal (eVent) and Marmot Exum Ridge (Goretex Active). Unfortunately, my testing was limited to an indoor fashion show, so I cannot comment on performance for the competitors. That said, the Knife Edge came away the clear winner for my purposes (but would probably not be my choice for a hardcore technical shell). The PacLite fabric is super soft, and felt great for casual wear - I definitely preferred the feel of the PacLite (in a non-technical setting) to the competition. The cut of the Knife Edge has a very form-flattering shape, with nice details in the chest and a longer back. All of the jackets fit well in size, and had good arm length, but the width of the arms and chest of the Knife Edge had the least amount of excess material, which is great for style points (not so great for layering). My one complaint is that the neck of the jacket zips up *really* high, definitely more than the competition. I like high jackets, but this seemed excessive. Fortunately, the material on the inside is super soft, so it doesn't bother my face... and after some tweaking, I found that tucking the corners of the neck inside the jacket (when not raining) hides the awkward length, and doesn't compromise style. So far, I have worn the jacket on a 2hr hike in sunny/raining conditions (80degF), on a cool windy night, and on a long flight (using the cinched-up hood like blackout curtains). I'm so in love with the jacket. Stayed dry on the hike, and comfortable - never felt too hot/sweaty/sticky. The jacket wins style points as a super functional windbreaker around town.... and bonus - blocks out light well and lets you sleep in comfort without worrying about people staring inside your mouth while you nap on your flight.

I work in a nursery. In comparison,The North Face Apex Flex seems heavier but I think it will be too warm for working in 50 degree weather. This jacket appears lighter but is it thick enough to withstand twigs and thorns?

Asked by: chenderson
​This jacket is lighter (10.7 oz.) than the Apex Flex GTX Jacket (14.4 oz.) and is made of a durable face fabric.
