Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good I needed to replace my other Gore_Tex jacket that served me well for 10 years. It fell apart in the end and overall had a thinner but flimsy-er feel to it. I use Rab Mountaineering products which turned me on to the E-vent material which I find more resilient. I really appreciate the design and cut of this jacket. After 3 recent heavy rain experiences it has proven itself well. Jackets with "pit zips" are a requirement for me and this jacket hit all the marks. The "newer" YKK waterproof zipper design works well too. Still early yet but so far, so good. I recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny. I love this jacket. Took it on a highly aerobic ascent to 10,000 feet and had no condensation inside -- thanks to well designed pit zips and breathable fabric -- even during a rainstorm which lasted 2 days. Well-placed pockets, nice hood, slightly longer length, and true to size. Have only had it for 2 months now, so cannot speak as to long-term durability. Main zipper was initially a little tight to get started, but with use this has resolved itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good all purpose shell so far used it for skiing and snow shoveling in sun, sleet and snow. eVent is significantly more breathable than goretex. Fit is a little gappy around the chest, but layering is needed for winter activity. Hood is great. Pockets are higher for hipbelt access. Fairly light, so it'll be good on summer backpacking trips. I'd recommend it whole heartedly as an all rounder for aerobic activity. There are warmer options if skiing or a cold weather raincoat is all you want from it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waterproofing Wears Out Very* Quickly I loved this jacket's many great features, but the bottom line is that the waterproofing wears out very quickly. It lasted through three very rainy days initially, but by the fourth day I was soaked. It only got worse after washing it. I even tried the waterproofing TechWash, sold at REI to rejuvenate it but that didn't work very well either. I still use it as a windproof layer but any ore than 20 minutes in light rain and I'm wet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent rain jacket I purchased a medium and found it to be too tight to wear much underneath, so I purchased a large instead. I went hiking on Mount Rainier and found that it looked good, kept me dry, and handled well with my pack. Thanks for another great purchase!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not fully waterproof Strange fit required me to purchase XXL instead of XL. Thankfully I got to try it on at the store before purchasing. Somewhat bulky in the chest. Washed only once per directions and noticed the DWR began to wear off. Been wearing in the city during many rainstorms. After 2 months water began to soak through in a typical Oregon rainstorm. Soaked through the hood, shoulders and zippers. Was really hoping for this jacket to last at least one year. Fabric is very thin which probably explains its breath-ability over waterproofing. I also suspect the jacket relied heavily on the DWR. If this jacket were only used in snow I doubt water would soak through it so quickly. Switching to a columbia outdry jacket. Hopefully if fairs better in the pacific nw rain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Done with 2.5 layers aka garbage bags I got this to replace a 2.5 layer rain shell. Does a better job of letting the sweat out, cheaper than other brands in the same category. Fit my shoulders better than the rest. eVent is similar to Goretex but lighter and wears cooler. The tag says to wash often to maintain water proofing. Pro: pit zips are good, the higher up front pockets are out of the way of a backpack waist belt, chest pocket is a good size. Con: no inside pockets, too tight around hips- should have a two way zip or flare to allow more movement.

Questions & Answers

If this jacket is used 1-2 times a year in semi-arid climate like southern California and stored in a closet the other times, will the waterproofing still break down in a short period of time? Or is The Rhyolite a more economical choice for general use?

Asked by: Shinsei
If cared for properly, the laminate on this jacket should not break down when stored in a closet. Laminates traditionally do not flake off over time the way coatings do. The Rhyolite has a similar waterproof/breathable laminate.

Is this a follow up to the Rhyolite Rain jacket or a completely new line of rain jacket from REI? If it is a follow up, what changes or upgrades have been made?

Asked by: Juke
The Stormrealm jacket is not a replacement for the Rhyolite jacket. The Stormrealm has a heavier fabric. It is 20 oz. vs. 12 oz. for the Rhyolite. The Stormrealm is hip-length vs. waist-length and has pit zips vs. core vents.

I don't know what event is. Is this jacket the type with a coating on it that will wear off? Or is this more like goretex where it's the actual fabric and will not wear off.

Asked by: donWolf
eVent is similar as its breathable like Gore-Tex and it is an actual fabric. Most waterproof/breathable garments have a DWR (durable water repellency) that will be worn down/off and will need restoring for proper functioning of the garment. The link below will help explain the benefits and differences for these products:

Does water bead up on the outside fabric of this jacket? Some waterproof breathable shells get soaked and lose breathability. The result is condensation inside and a thoroughly wet jacket that takes forever to dry.

Asked by: Marty
The outside is coated with a durable water repellent finish (DWR) which causes water to bead up on the outside of the jacket. Over time the DWR can wear off. The Nikwax Hard-shell Outerwear Cleaner and Waterproofing is a great way to revive the DWR on a jacket.
