Disappointed by Snagging


I really wanted to love this coat (especially for the cost), but I'm extremely disappointed in the snagging the material has experienced after just a week of use during walks through brushy areas.


love this lightweight goretex jacket


sleeves long enough!



Best goretex jacket for the money


I got it for my fiancée and she loves it. It's not the best goretex jacket on the market but the value is better than anything else out there. For this price point nothing else comes close to the quality of this jacket



Love it!


I got caught in a nasty rain storm right after I bought it, and it kept me 100% dry.

Great jacket, great fit!


Great jacket, fits well. Not entirely windproof, but alas, that's not what it's directly for!





Excellent jacket. Full side zips are great.

Some downfalls, but overall happy


I have an Aspire jacket from 2017 and love it so much that I decided I wanted another one (not professionally branded). I didn't realize how much the construct/model from this year would differ to the previous year. I really like the look, feel and pocket depth of the 2017, the 2018 Aspire model has rather shallow pockets that make me a little worried about things falling out. I do like the breast pocket on the 2018 jacket!!! Can't complain too much though. It's a solid jacket.

Totally waterproof and durable!


I bought this for rainy outdoor activities but have ended up using it more for work. I am on a restoration field crew so sometimes we are outside working in the rain for 8 hours a day and this jacket keeps me completely dry. It is also surprisingly durable considering how soft it feels and how well it moves. I have the aspire pants as well and I've really put them through the wringer, from kneeling in the mud and hand pulling weeds all day to deconstructing and rebuilding fences in a downpour (there's really no rush like rolling up 400 feet of barbed wire while wearing gore-tex!). At the end of the day I zip everything up and let my co-workers blast me with the hose and when I take off the shells my clothes are totally dry underneath! I will definitely buy the aspire line again if these ever wear out. The hood also fits over my bike helmet which is an added plus!

hi! would love to get the exact weight of the XS. thank you!


we have metrix on our middle size on this model and the M runs 13.7, typically we see around a 1 oz reduction in weight through sizes, so an extra size would be running in the 11 oz range, hoping this helps dial in a winning choice, otherwise give us an email at [email protected] and we can try and assist further!


I bought my woman's aspire jacket almost a year ago - early for a trip in September to England. I was all excited about it - but the day we got hit with a storm ( while in England) I was soaked through. I went on line and found that someone else with a similar problem did something like throw it in the dryer to activate something that has to do with the rainproofing element that is suppose to be there. I've not found that information again; and in the meantime have not used the jacket much at all. Is there something that can be done to activate rainproofing. I probably should have sent the jacket back, but kept thinking I'd ask this first , and time has gotten away from me. Now I am coming into the season I will potentially use it again (or would like to). Any help you can give me?
