Our criteria for a rain jacket aren't numerous, but we refuse to use any rain jacket that doesn't meet them. A jacket must be waterproof, windproof, fit well, and be stowable. Giordana meets those demands and more with its Monsoon Lyte Jacket, which ticks off each item on the list with the pro-level quality we love from Giordana. The eVent DV ALpine membrane is water- and windproof, as you'd expect, and it also begins to breathe immediately rather than waiting for the accumulation of moisture like many other membranes. That makes it ideal for the kind of on-again/off-again conditions where packable rain jackets really come in handy, helping to keep you comfortable even in changing conditions.
