Well folks, I bought myself last year's Orage Hit Jacket for fairly cheap. It is not one of the top end jackets from Orage. But let me tell you, it has been POURING rain all day here, which I have had to walk around in for about 45 minutes. My jacket has been completely dry and beaded all water away with no absorbtion. If you are debating between oakley, orage, burton, or other companies, I would recommend Orage, very nice stuff. Oh, and this comes from someone who has owned all high end Oakley stuff: lab coat, radiator jacket, hot plate. Needless to say, I am big Orage fan now
I dream of winter.
