09-10 Columbia Sportswear Stormtrooper Jacket Review
A waterproof/ breathable all mountain jacket at a very reasonable price. Extra pockets for all your goodies!
This jacket exceeded all of my expectations in the technical arena. Breathable and waterproof, I tested this jacket hiking and riding in a snowstorm and shoveling a foot of snow over a couple hours. I stayed comfortable and dry throughout. Light insulation coupled with a supple exterior fabric keeps this jacket clean and functional.
This piece is packed full of standard features found on garments twice as expensive. Adjustable powder belt, detachable helmet-compatible hood and insulated audio pocket make this jacket a great value. Additionally I counted ten pockets on this garment, allowing you to carry everything but the kitchen sink with you on the hill.
Added benefits include you friends never losing you on the hill due to the technicolor mash-up of green, blue and white print!
