We think you should be able to fit all of your waterproof gear in a really small bag, and our fully windproof, waterproof and breathable Microburst line is the lightest sailing shell you’ll find on this planet. With today’s technical fabrics and layering techniques, sailing jackets and pants don’t need to be bulky to be good, so whether you’re leaving the dock to fish, sail or just hang out on the water, go light, go dry and go fast. Go Microburst.
AWG VMG Fabric: Lightweight, packable, fully waterproof, windproof & breathable 4.5 oz. 2.5-layer ripstop nylon. Raised microprint pattern protects the waterproof/breathable membrane. 80/20 DWR.
• Waterproof Rating: 10,000 MM
• Breathability Rating: 10,000 g/sq. m/24 hours
Designed for warm weather sailing and boating. Lightweight and highly breathable yet waterproof in almost all conditions, and soft-shell so you can stuff it into any bag or lazarette. The hood is different on the men’s and women’s jackets – that’s on purpose and geared to deliver against what each asked us for: men wanted easy stowage and a low profile while women wanted a full hood that offers great coverage. The pants are designed without chafe patches to keep them light and packable, so they’re great for situations where wind and water resistance are key though not great for non-skid decks.

This product is fantastic, it's very cool looking and is definitely the most functional rain jacket I've ever had!

I travel all over the place for sailing and for work and I'm a big guy, which means my clothes are big. I have had the microburst for a couple of years now and it goes with me on every trip every where. There is no reason not to have this killer looking jacket with you for both rain and wind resistance because my xxl packs into a tiny space. You normal-sized people could nearly put it in your back pocket. Excellent zippers, great design, very good jacket
