Why we made this
Light and versatile, the Traverse Pertex® Rain Jacket is waterproof, windproof and breathable — ideal for light hiking trips.
  • Product Description
    Light yet durable for its weight, the Traverse Pertex® Rain Jacket is a waterproof jacket designed for hiking light and fast. With lightweight Pertex® Shield Pro on the main body, hood and sleeves and a mid-weight version of the same fabric on the shoulders and lower cuffs, this jacket is body mapped for greater durability in areas of wear while carrying a pack. With an air-permeable microporous PU membrane, the three layer Pertex® Shield Pro fabric is waterproof, windproof and highly breathable during high intensity activity — which means you'll stay protected and comfortable in a range of different environments. Featuring water-resistant YKK® AquaGuard® zips, the Traverse allows you to zip the hood into the collar for a clean and compact aesthetic. Please note, the YKK® AquaGuard® zips are water resistant not waterproof.

Excellent jacket
I am very happy with this ! My size is 8 but took size 10 because in winter time will wear another jacket ( fleece, down etc ) under the rain jacket.
Very comfortable, soft and light.
Good water proof when the jacket wet, surface is 10min later already dry.
I would recommend this jacket.

Awesome jacket!
Its extremely light, I carry it with me everyone, since NZ`s weather is pretty unstable.

I use it mainly for commuting, but did some hikes with it as well. It also works as a windbreaker during summer, since its pretty breathable.

The only thing that I dont like much is the collar. Its pretty stiff and even with the chin guard, it still hurts a bit while full zipped.

Is this jacket warmer than the down jacket?
Ros P on Nov 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Ros - they serve a different purpose so its very difficult to compare the Traverse jacket with a down jacket. Down jackets are very warm. The Traverse is a waterproof garment but has no thermal insulation. The Traverse will give you some warmth as it stops wind and keeps you reasonably dry. It will help keep some body warmth against your skin but it definitely won't provide the insulation and warmth that a down jacket will. But if your down jacket gets wet it losses most of its insulation properties. You can get down jackets with a water-resistant outer shell. In very cold and damp conditions outdoors you would probably wear something like a Traverse rain jacket over your down jacket to help stop the wind chill and rain but give you the warm of down.
