His strength makes it look fine after years of use, without any scratch.

It comes with a microfleece-lined neck, hook-and-loop cuff closures, drawcord hem and stuffs into the zippered handwarmer pockets.

Outdoor Research Men's Foray GORE-TEX Waterproof Jacket

Waterproof Gore-Tex

This lightweight fabric with all-season features adds a lot of value to the jacket. The gore-tex will last for years, it wont break down or decay, nor have any coating wear off.

With the 2-layer GORE-TEX Paclite, shedding wind and water like no other, your waterproof and breathable protection is guaranteed.

Forget for leaks and dampness. Most waterproof jackets will fail after a few hours of rain, but not Foray! Perfect shell for hiking/backpacking and durable enough for light mountaineering, alpine climbing, and backcountry skiing. The Foray is reliable in different environments from offshore ocean racing on a sailboat to cycling, walking and adventuring out in the city.

Unique ventilation system

This rain shell would keep you dry from both the rain and the sweat. The ventilation from the full side pit zips is amazing. The jacket can open up like a poncho. Double-sliding, water-resistant TorsoFlo zippers open from hem to bicep for evacuating the excess of body heat. You couldn't use a better shell if you live in a warm humid environment!


The jacket isn't lined so you might need some layers for any cooler temperature. The simple and clean design and the standard fit allow you to move freely and leave space for insulating mid layers. You can wear the jacket over insulation/gear in winter or without insulation in the other three seasons. With a base layer or a fleece as a second layer, you can feel comfortable in a wide range of temperatures.

Adjustable hood

With both front and back adjustments, it fits perfectly and is much more comfortable than any other hood. The front zips up to the level of your nose, providing protection from wind. The brim on the hood keeps rain off your face. The hood maintains peripheral vision and does not restrict head movement.


Handy hook and loop wrist sleeve adjustments offer a nice tight windproof fit over gloves and mitts. Sleeves are long and allow you to reach up freely while keeping your wrists covered.


This rain jacket features a two-way front zipper with external storm flap for a dry weather tight seal and additional venting, hook-and-loop cuff closures and a draw cord hem. Fully taped seams and water resistant zippers keep wet out in changing conditions.

The jacket packs up into the left hand pocket which is very convenient for tight storage in your backpack.
