Did take my bike to town today again when we should buy some rattan furniture to our patio – did find one that we liked and bought, unboxing right now 🙂
BUT! When I was going home it started to rain so I got my 5.11 packable jacket out of my bag and put it on. At first it was really nice and dry, also kept the wind out and I stayed warm and cozy 🙂 Then the rain got heavier and the jacket was really put to its limits and it failed, big time! When I got home I was soaking wet from top to toe. The 5.11 packable jacket is nice for windy condition and a little rain but more than that it will fail on you. But hey, it cost only about 20 USD so what can you really expect out of a jacket for that money. The jacket itself besides all this with the rain – has got some really nice quality to it, so don’t think otherwise, 5.11 knows their stuff!
My 5.11 tactical pants were actually dry for quite some time, longer than I expected. On the back of my leg they were really nice and dry 😉
My Camelbak HAWG was only wet on the exterior but inside it was nice and dry and kept my wallet, smashed iPhone and some other stuff safe from the heavy rain.
