Life in the mountains or on the flats is unpredictable, making a lightweight stashable rain jacket a necessity. The Rivulet is a 2.5 layer DWR-treated Nylon performance shell with taped seams that offers waterproof protection and excellent breathability in a light but bomber package that's perfect for quick moving storms. Welded inside the jacket, you will find a pocket for your phone, or any of your water-sensitive valuables. The front of the jacket includes two zippered pockets for your hands and an oversized chest pocket for anything you need quick access to. No need to worry about a little precipitation ending your outing when you have the Rivulet on hand.

This jacket is lightweight and packs very small but still has lots of features. The colour looks smart and is maybe slightly darker than in the picture above.
Features include long pit zips ( which are going to be very useful in hot weather), 3 outside pockets, and an internal pocket - the internal pocket has a very small slit, which I assume is for headphones. The sleeves can be cinched tight with velcro tabs and the hem is adjustable. The hood is an interesting and practical design, with 3 point adjustment which forms itself into a slight peak over your face when cinched tight.
All the zips are covered with storm flaps, with the main front zip having a double storm flap.
This now lives in a small stuff sack in my sling pack. I haven´t tried it in a downpour yet, but it easily shrugged off a few showers. I´ll have to wait until it gets warmer to check breathability.
Like many other Exterus products this is very good value and is at home both on and off the water.
