It compresses smaller than the Outdoor Research Foray and The North Face Dryzzle, both of which use Gore-tex Paclite fabric. Even compared to the 2.5 layer Marmot Precip, the Zeta packs down more compactly. The title for the most packable jackets goes to the Outdoor Research Helium Rain and the Patagonia Storm 10 — both of which were roughly 50% the volume of the Zeta but also provide less stormworthiness, are less versatile, and are less durable.

This model is one of the few options that doesn't feature some sort of "stuff pocket" to help compress it. While this was hardly a big deal as we just stuff it into its own hood or down the side of our pack, it is one of the few features that most of the jackets in our review have.

This newest Gore-Tex Paclite Plus is built with a true 2-layer design, which isn this protect the membrane from the sweat and oil of your skin. It should be noted that this is different than the physical (still commonly sprayed on) coatings of many 2.5-layer products. This true 2-layer design makes the garment more breathable, as the moisture has to travel through less fabric and is lighter in weight due to the decrease in the material.

Hiking Women: A women's hiking jacket is a great investment, and you should consider purchasing one that is insulated and waterproof. A women's jacket made of waterproof material can protect you from wind, rain, and snow, and it should be breathable and stretchy, so you can move freely. These jackets are also ideal for outdoor activities that require a high level of performance, including hiking and camping. However, you should be aware that insulated clothing cannot protect you against extreme cold, so it's important to choose one that provides a bit of breathability and flexibility.
