The most breathable hardshell with essential rain protection, according to Engearment.
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.
