The Apollo Jacket was the perfect compromise for needing a rainproof layer for both city and alpine European travel. It's sleek fit, downplayed logo and solid black, simple design made it perfect for dressing up with a scarf yet it handled the rainy weather in the Alps. It's very lightweight, packs small, breathable enough for moderate activity and will keep you dry in moderate rain. It didn't hold up in a torrential down pour and the fabric isn't going to withstand the test of time but it's perfect for travel, urban environments or ultralight backpacking.
