Mountain Hardwear Super Light Plasmic
The Mountain Hardwear Superlight Plasmic was given the Premium Performance Award from the team at ProLite Gear because it stood a notch above the rest of the Best Lightweight Rain Jackets that we reviewed. The Dry.Q EVAP fabric(which re-branded eVENT DVL) was the only fabric that had any air permeability as measured on our test device. Mountain Hardwear Superlight Plasmic jacket was also the only jacket to use a YKK AquaGuard® VISLON® zipper(size 5), which is a superior zipper in terms of performance and durability. Weighing 7.9 ounces(225 grams) for a size Large, The Mountain Hardwear Superlight Plasmic jacket was not the lightest jacket in the review, but it did not sacrifice features like the jackets that were lighter weight. Our testers felt that for the weight, the Mountain Hardwear Superlight Plasmic jacket had the features they wanted on a lightweight rain jacket.
