1. REI Co-op Drypoint GTX ($249)
Category: Performance/daily use
Waterproofing: 3L Gore-Tex Active
What we like: Premium feel and feature set.
What we don’t: The OR Interstellar below is slightly more mountain ready.
REI’s in-house line of rain shells takes another major step forward with the release of the Drypoint GTX. Most notably, REI has partnered with waterproofing powerhouse Gore-Tex (we liked the eVent used in the old Rhyolite jacket, but it’s hard to argue against Gore-Tex Active).
All in all, the Drypoint has a premium look and feel, a supple interior that doesn’t get clammy, and ample features including core zips integrated into the mesh-lined hand pockets and easy-to-use hood and cuff adjustments.
At 10.5 ounces and around $250, we like the Drypoint more than the Arc’teryx Zeta SL below. Both are hybrid hiking/everyday rain jackets that perform well and look the part, but the Zeta is more expensive and lacks a venting system.
The Outdoor Research Interstellar below is another viable competitor that comes in at a similar weight (11.6 ounces to be exact), but being a lightweight and stretchy hardshell, it’s a little more mountain-ready than the REI. But any way you slice it, the Drypoint GTX is a serious rain jacket at a reasonable price and weight…
