|Dori models her Bluefield Raincoat|
But today, a Facebook Friend, Dori Yacono, put up a photo of the Bluefield HEAVYweight Raincoat and by golly, it looks like a great option to the more expensive ALTUS!
Though it is billed as heavyweight, the weight is listed as 14 ounces.
This is less than the 15 ounces of the ALTUS Atmospheric and about the same as the 14 ounces of the ALTUS raincoat.
The price on Amazon PRIME today is $26 - $32, depending on the size you order. That's less than the ALTUS.
I love the bright orange color - traffic will see you.
And I especially love the reflective strips on arms and waist.
I see that there is a drawstring at the waist which is nice.
And I love that the back is longer, to protect your legs from droplets coming off the pack cover.
This coat comes with a clear plastic shield, but Dori didn't like it so she cut it off. I think I'd probably cut it off too, and just use it over my hat brim.
Here is what the ad says:
