DriDucks Micropore Rainsuit

Ultralight – and ultra-affordable – microporous polypropylene raingear with excellent breathability.

BackpackingLight.com Comments:

DriDucks Ultra-lite Rain suits are made with microporous polypropylene waterproof-breathable nonwoven fabrics. Microporous polypropylene is used in other brands of lightweight raingear, including Frogg Toggs and Rainshield. The differences between DriDucks and these other products are outlined in the table below:

Product Weight (Jacket + Pants) Durability Price
Frogg Toggs Pro Action 16 oz ++ > $40
Rainshield O2 Rainwear 10 oz + > $40
DriDucks Micropore 12 oz + < $30
Table Notes:
  1. Typical weights of hooded full zip jacket and pants, size L.
  2. Frogg Toggs are made from a heavier 3-layer PP nonwoven fabric. Other products are 2-layer.

Durability Notes: DriDucks are made with a two-layer microporous polypropylene laminate. They are intended for casual use by ultralight backpackers that know how to take care of their gear. We recommend them for on-trail backpacking, not mountaineering or bushwhacking. In particular, we highly recommend them as cheap alternatives to expensive and heavier raingear for mild weather backpacking where your raingear sits in the bottom of your pack most of the time anyways. DriDucks are cheap, ultralight, and compact!

About the Surface Finish: DriDucks have a slick surface finish, unlike Frogg Toggs, but similar to Rainshield, and because of such, maintain better "DWR-like" water resistance over time, are more resistant to staining and "shed brush" better when you do have to bushwhack with them.
