      Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Microburst Lite Jacket:

      I use this on its own as a light rain shell to save wear and tear on my heavy duty rain shell. I also combine it with other lightweight products, like my Patagonia R2. R2 is great inside, or 0 wind, but any wind goes right through it. Put this on my R2 and the result is a super light version of a heavy fleece.

      Good Example of the Bare Minimum

        Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Microburst Lite Jacket:

        First, understand what you're getting; this is a bare minimum wind shell. It is water resistant, not water proof, so it won't hold up in a monsoon. On the other hand, it breathes very well.

        Additionally, this jacket is astoundingly light. It packs into it's own chest pocket so it's hard to argue for ever leaving it behind.

        It's not a rain jacket. It's a wind shell. If that's what you want, you can't do much better than this.

              Purchased this near end of summer to have light shell for fall, and chilly temps arrived a little early this year.Worked excellent on morning bike commutes to work in mid 40s with lightweight sweatshirt underneath. Was very handy during bike tour of beach towns in De,and Md.at end of September,You get some pretty good breezes down there. Hate to see this is being clearenced out. BUY IT WHILE YOU CAN!

                  Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Men's Microburst Lite Jacket:

                  I wore this going to an event on a warm evening. When it started to rain, I zipped up and put the hood up. It did exactly what I needed.

                      No pockets, and the zipper broke - literally after one use. I would recommend spending a bit more on a higher quality product.

                        So light you cannot be without it. Compact yet durable and functional for its intended usage.
                        Provides shelter from wind & light rain in a super light shell which includes a hood and full zip. Only improvements would be a larger chest pocket and adjustable closure on wrist(velcro instead of elastic). Over all great value for price.
