It is made from Hydravent material, which is lightweight and windproof, but from our own experience we know it to be showerproof to a certain degree too. There are two mesh panels in the rear to aid venting, and the cuffs are elasticated with thumb holes in them. A drawstring base hem and drawstrong neck enable you to seal it up nicely against the wind. If you’re after something that will fit in a pocket and provides just a handy barrier against those cold biting winds, then this is worth a look – but it’s pricey for what it is.
