I'm in the market for a new hardshell, so what better place to ask for advice than a forum with mostly UK-based members? After a lot of reading, I came across the Columbia Outdry technology. There's not a lot of long-term reviews I could find, but all of the reviews were really positive about the waterproofness and the durability of the jackets. Opinions about breathability were divided, but when aren't they? If they really stay waterproof for a long time under the abrasion of a backpack, then they are amazing value, starting at €125. Does anybody have any experience with these jackets? Or any other suggestions for an affordable rain jacket that holds up decently to the abrasion of a backpack and isn't too heavy? Thanks!
