Polartec Neoshell. How do you like yours?

Postby bking14ers » Sun Feb 03, 2013 9:45 am

I am looking into a Neoshell Jacket, but I got a question. Are they 100% waterproof after being in the rain for long periods of time? I like the Westcomb, and Marmot jackets. I couldn't find anything about them in the forum, can't believe that.

Yes. I have the Rab Stretch Neo and it's done quite well in extended precipitation events.

That's just what I wanted to hear. Thank's for posting that artical on Neoshell. I did try on the Rab jacket yesterday, that's when I first learned of this type of material. BUTT, man was it super expensive. Nice jacket though.
