If what you need is a lightweight, streamlined, no-frills rain jacket built for active use and versatility, it's going to be the Motive AscentShell™ Jacket. We were able to make this layer so light by focusing on features made for performance without weight. The cuffs and hood use a cinched binding that creates a tight seal to keep weather and wind out, and a 3-layer waterproof shell construction with mechanical stretch ensures you can move through whatever weather pattern is on the horizon.
Since 2016, Outdoor Research’s proprietary AscentShell™ technology uses an electrospun process to create a 3L construction that breathes faster, weighs less, stretches more, and far surpasses the comfort of traditional waterproof membranes.

Since 2016, Outdoor Research's proprietary AscentShell™ technology uses an electrospinning process to create a 3L construction that breathes faster, weighs less, stretches more, and far surpasses the comfort of traditional waterproof membranes. Never crunchy or noisy, AscentShell™ is just as comfortable as a soft shell, with the performance of a hard shell. Air permeable and breathable, AscentShell™ vents perspiration and excess heat during aerobic activity, while its light weight saves precious energy on demanding endeavors.
