RATING AND REVIEWS

Easily the best piece of equipment I've ever purchased!

5

The only flaw is sometimes the zipper sticks when zipping up/ down but only at the joint at the bottom of the jacket. After a year of heavy use in rain, wind, hail and snow there are no signs of wear. It's a great casual jacket too. Packs up real nice and is always ready to answer the call, no matter how extreme. I love this jacket.

Let me down

I bought this jacket from MEC in the spring (2017) and returned it in August (2017). It looked like an amazing jacket for my backpacking & canoeing/portaging since it offered amazing venting and was reasonably light weight. However on the last night of my early August canoe trip it was put to the test and failed in a downpour. It kept the water off me for the >5 minutes I was out, but I felt a very pronounced cooling sensation on my shoulders once I was back under the tarp. I took the jacket off, hung it up and within a few minutes the water had wicked from the outside through to the inside of the shell; the face fabric was pretty much dry in 15 minutes and the inside of the jacket was soaked. I didn't bother with the jacket on the last morning in the drizzle. I then returned the jacket when I got home. I suspect this was a one-off with that particular jacket, but I wasn't willing to gamble with another. Instead I'll stick with my old reliable Axiom jacket and skip on the venting.

An unfortunate let-down

1

I purchased this jacket @ MEC in the spring last year (2017) and returned it in August of 2017. What drew me to the jacket was the complete flexibility it offered for venting - something I could really use while back-packing/canoeing-portaging. Also the fit of the jacket allowed for a layer underneath which would be good for cooler evenings. Unfortunately the jacket didn't keep water out. In fact, it seemed to wick water from the outside fabric to the inside of the jacket. I found this out on the last night of a canoe trip my wife and I were on. We had a downpour where I was out for less than 5 minutes to re-tension a tie-out on the tarp. Once that was done and I was back under the tarp, I took the jacket off as I could feel my shoulders cooling down rapidly. Within a few minutes of taking the jacket off and hanging it, the face fabric was visibly drier while the inside of the jacket was soaked (shoulders, torso and inside of the sleeves). I didn't bother using the Foray the next day paddling back to the put-in even though it was drizzling & windy - I saw no point to it. Once back at home, I returned the Foray. I'm pretty sure this was a one-off exception. However, I don't trust it enough to buy & try again. I'll stick with my old but reliable Axiom jacket and forego the venting.

Great jacket

Great jacket, I like the huge arm pit vent. The jacket can be packet in one of its own pocket ... use full for pack packing. Best bang for the bucks.

This jacket does as advertised. I have used it both in the woods and while traveling and it has yet to let me down in either function or design. Most notably I am very impressed with how the jacket works with the hip belt on a ruck sack, the full side zips offer mobility, flexibility and interoperability. Just like everything it will eventually wet through but given its weight and breathability I could not ask for anymore.

Must have shell

I have been using the foray jacket for the past year, it is an amazing piece to my collection, 6"1 165 lbs , the large fits me perfect with any type of layer on underneath. I have aquired 2 jackets over the past year and have just ordered another a medium for summer wear with minimal layers

Discussions

What is the ribbon with velcro attached to the inside of the jacket above the label? Is it to secure the hood when not in use.

chuck

Hi Chuck, That is correct, the hood roll tab is meant to stow the hood of the jacket when you prefer it not to be hanging loosely. Roll the hood forward, put the roll tab through the loop on the back of the jacket and enclose the velcro to secure it. Thanks for contacting OR, Paul

Will this jacket be fine with being packed for prolonged periods of time? I was planning to leave it packed up in my EDC bag through the fall months. I live in Victoria B.C. . The fall weather here can be warm like summer then cold and wet an hour later.

Dave

Hi Dave, We recommend that the jacket is hung and stored loose when it's not being used. You may roll the jacket and stuff it in your pack, however, do not fold the jacket as it can cause stress and wear on the fabric. Thanks for contacting OR, Paul
