$100 for an effective life of 2 years.
on December 13, 2014
I was thrilled with this jacket when I bought it in 2011 to replace a much-loded but stolen Venture (which I will buy again). The shape is great, and for the first year or so the water-repellent properties were excellent, but the inside coating that helps it repel water started to break up and peel after two years of gentle, occasional use (we've been in a record-breaking drought in So Cal). After three years, my hundred-dollar jacket will have to get its water-repelling qualities from a spray because in this condition water soaks straight through.
