Article Summary:You want light? The Integral Designs eVENT Jacket is light: our review sample weighs 8.8 oz (size M). You want breathable? The Integral Designs eVENT Jacket is breathable. It’s made with eVENT, one of, if not the, most breathable nylon-faced waterproof material available. How about durability? No sweat for the mainstream lightweight hiker – the 3-layer eVENT used in this jacket has a tough nylon face that makes two-layer fabrics of similar weight seem fragile indeed. Does the Integral Designs eVENT Jacket inch closer to being the perfect waterproof breathable rain jacket for the lightweight hiker? This review includes a summary of the jacket's specifications (including face fabric technology), an assessment of its primary features (ventilation options, usability, and sizing/fit), a report of its field performance (storm resistance, breathability, and durability), value, use of the jacket in the context of clothing systems, and recommendations for improvement.
