Arc’teryx Zeta SL

One of the priciest options, Arc’teryx Zeta SL Rain Jacket is an entire package: it is lightweight, packable, has a 40-denier shell against stormy weather, and is soft to the touch. Do not let its sleek design fool you – it is as tough as the thicker and bulkier jackets out there. Its many upscale attributes make it practical for both adventure-seekers and everyday wearers. Basically, if the budget allows and the purchase is justified, you could get plenty of use out of it.

Having its own pros and cons, this waterproof jacket has its fair share of fans. Whether you decide to go on a hike or walk your dog in the foggy morning, this user-friendly jacket will be your friend. Besides having a set of basic and not-so-basic features, you will certainly stand out in the crowd with its stylish design. The choice is ultimately yours.
