The Isis Vivian rain jacket is a lightweight waterproof/breathable jacket with excellent ventilation. The Isis Vivian WP/B jacket is not the lightest jacket on the market, but it caters to a female market looking for better fit and on-trail fashion without a huge weight penalty. At 11.5 ounces (326 g, size 10) it weighs only slightly more than the comparable Sierra Designs DT Tech (11.2 ounces) and the Marmot Dart jacket (10 ounces), but significantly more than the Patagonia Women's Specter jacket (8.3 ounces).
The Isis Vivian WP/B jacket has a comfortable stretch nylon ripstop fabric with outer Entrant DT10K coating and inner "half" layer of polyurethane that allows a freedom of movement that other jackets, especially those sized for men, cannot replicate. Since the Isis Vivian WP/B jacket is designed from the ground up for women, it fits. The arms are the right length, the shoulders are the right proportion, and the mesh hand pockets are at the right angle. No small bonus; the Isis Vivian WP/B jacket is a fabulous color and looks great!
