I love it! I have used the coat as a waterproof cover for my blankets while backpacking, a barrier to the snow also while backpacking and as a cover for my bag. Last weekend I was on my second night of a 3 day backpacking trip. I put it on thinking it will be awesome when I use this as a coat. That night it rained, hard. I was under the Tentsmiths tarp. At 3 am I knew I had to get out, the wind was picking something fierce. Couldn’t pack up since the wind was going 60+ and on an exposed ridge. I had on a wool sweater then put on the coat. It was 35 degrees before the wind chill. I sat on my sleeping pad and trap(so they wouldn’t blow away)for 2 hours waiting for the wind to slow down enough to leave. I am so thankful I brought the watch coat if not I would of been in deep $hit. Wind would of cut right through the sweater. As I left i kept the coat on, knowing I would get wet from the inside. However, also knowing that nasty wind wouldn’t make it through. Out off all the gear I have for way off the trail trips, this coat and tarp are some of my most important items.
