Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best for cycling This is the second one I've bought; it's light, waterproof and windproof and, importantly, fits into a container on my bike so it can be removed when the day warms up. Negatives? Only one, the hood gets caught in the wind and flaps about, obscuring vision in my rear-view mirror. If there's a solution to this, I'd like to learn about it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not even 4 months and this what happened... I bought this 4 months ago and washes it according to instructions. And for some reasons the material just breaks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and comfortable This is my second Zeolite jacket after the first one was loved to death. Very light, keeps out wind and steady rain and breathes reasonably well. Meets all UTA requirements too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent jacket! I bought this a week ago and wore it for the first time today bike riding. It kept the cool weather out and then when it got warm, I undid the zip and only had the button clipped up which then allowed the cool air through. Wow great feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life saver Brought this jacket in 2017cand has saved me well over 100 times out on the trails. Packs down super small so easily fits in my back pocket for biking, running, hiking etc.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Really disappointed as not really water proof Read all the reviews and thought this was the best option (for long distance running and trail running) and definitely not a cheap option but brought it anyhow. Only been out twice with it, once in very lite rain the other when drizzling and both times has not been water proof!? Arms get wet within 30mins. If it wasn't so lite weight and comfortable to run in I'm sorry but I'd give it 1 star as its meant to be lite weight (yes) AND waterproof (not fully) which is the main reason for buying. Brought many Kathmandu items over the years and this is the first time I've regretted doing so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact & High Quality I used this item extensively in training for the mountain run of the Kathmandu Coast to Coast. In the past I have used similar waterproof jackets, but never found one that didn't give me that ' plastic rubbish bag' feeling to run in- the sweaty, loud rustling, sauna feeling that everyone hates. This jacket was fantastic as it did away with all of those issues- it was light and breathable, a perfect fit to be used both over and under a running vest, and was soft and flexible without feeling delicate or likely to rip. To top it off the jacket folds up into its own pocket shockingly small, and is easy to pack away and get out. It is simply a piece of kit I couldn't leave behind on an adventure- highly recommend it.

Hi, Can a back pack be worn over this jacket without affecting the material or the waterproofing. I have read that some materials the weight of the back pack and the constant rubbing weakens the material.

Asked by: Anonymous
This jacket is designed for trail running, not hiking. Wearing a pack for a long period of time with this jacket would impact waterproofness and breathability, as it's not as durable as our jackets designed specifically for hiking.

I've had this jacket for a while now, and it has lost its waterproofness. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

Asked by: Ernie277
If you are noticing the water is not beading off this jacket as well as it should then we recommend reviving the Durable Water Repellent. How to restore the water repellency of your waterproof jacket: Wash in After washing your jacket through a standard cycle, give it another spin with Granger’s Clothing Repel. Select a warm wash at 30 degrees Celsius, and select a standard washing program. Spray on After washing your waterproof jacket, use a specialised product like Granger’s Performance Repel. Spray directly on the damp garment from a distance of 10–15 centimetres. Wait for two minutes, and wipe away any excess with a clean cloth. Drying Depending on the advice on your care label, your garment can either air dry or tumble dry. Follow the instructions for the best results.

Can the hood be rolled up into the collar when not in use? If not, any solutions to avoid the wind parachute effect?

Asked by: Eddie T
No sorry it cannot, but you can always tuck the hood in to keep it from blowing in the wind

Can you please confirm the hydrostatic head waterproof rating for this? I'm looking for something with a 15-20000mm rating. Thx

Asked by: Gleng
This jacket has 10,000mm hydrostatic head, which is sufficient for this type of Active Jacket and fully waterproof when considering the terminal velocity of rain ⛈ also just want to mention this jacket has 40,000g/m²24h breathability performance making it one of our highest performing jackets. If you are looking for a higher spec active/running jacket check out our Zeolite Shakedry which has a waterproof rating of 28,000 mm > https://www.kathmandu.co.nz/zeolite-mns-shakedry-jacket.html
