This is our top choice as the best ultralight GORE-TEX® Jacket available. This Zeta FL Jacket is a big step up in durability over the Arc'teryx superlight Norvan SL Hoody, since it has the addition of an ultralight fabric laminated on the outside of the waterproof membrane for added protection, and is only a few ounces heavier. This is ultralight rain gear refined to near nirvana-like perfection, and still includes great basic functional features like an adjustable hood, WaterTight™ front zipper, sculpted low-profile form-fitting elasticized minimalist hem and cuffs, and hand warmer pockets with WaterTight™ zippers. The new 2L GORE-TEX® PACLITE® Plus fabric eliminates the inner laminate fabric used in traditional 3L GORE-TEX® and reduces weight, decreases water absorption, increases breathability, and speeds drying time while improving the next-to-skin comfort. This jacket makes a great emergency super packable rain coat to have in the bottom of your pack or bag while hiking or traveling just in case you need it. And when you do need it, you will be happy to find that it will keep you dry in the biggest of unexpected sudden deluges and downpours.
