Let go of any preconceived ideas you might have about trench coats when you approach the Sierra Designs Men's Ultralight Trench Jacket. This three layer rain jacket is lightweight, packable, and well ventilated for the trail. Weighing only ten ounces, the Ultralight Trench prepares you for those torrential downpours that usually roll through the high country in the afternoons. The jacket's unique Awning underarm vents allow air to pass through for a well ventilated feel, and with hip belt vents at the waist, you can wear the jacket with a backpack by running the hip belt through the vents. Thin cuff tabs with elastic help to seal out moisture, while the adjustable hood keeps the rain off your dome with its stiffened brim. When you're not backpacking or hiking, the street ready styling of the Ultralight Trench allows you to wear this jacket out around town when it's raining cats and dogs.
