WHICH MONSOON TACTICAL RAIN JACKET IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
The jacket is just great! I have owned it for a year and it has never leaked. It’s very good if you want to wear it solo or with more layers of clothes. It works great with the AcE Winter Combat Shirt that I have.
Once I was driving my Cube Stereo Hybrid 160 Action Team bike for two hours in a heavy rainstorm and I was still dry like gunpowder.
The jacket is also very resistant to cuts and tears—there have been a lot of times that I grazed the jacket on bushes or rock and nothing happened to the jacket. I would suggest a bigger zipper.
The hood functions great with my bike helmet and others like caving and military helmets.
The Monsoon XT Gen. 2 delivers what it promises. A robust, waterproof jacket. In spite of the waterproof property, the jacket offers ventilation properties. Fortunately, you don't sweat, even if your activity level increases. A jacket that keeps you dry at all times, especially in very bad weather and nasty rain.
Are waterproof jackets really waterproof?
Yes. We use in our garments only the highest-grade laminates, such as GORE-TEX. We thoroughly test the gear in a controlled environment, then put it to real-life testing to ensure it performs at the best possible level.
Why does my rain jacket get wet inside?
Most times wetting of the middle and base layers is not caused by water finding its way in from the outside. Instead, it’s usually the result of a physiological/physical process.
Specifically, under certain circumstances, the human body produces more sweat than the laminate is able to carry away to the jacket’s hard-shell outer face.
You can see this for yourself by engaging in some physically demanding outdoor activities while wearing your waterproof jacket when it’s not raining and the temperature is around -5°C.

What do you wear under a rain jacket?
We recommend you wear a high-quality merino undershirt as the base layer when wearing a Rain Jacket. Merino wool has excellent moisture wicking properties that in effect increase the moisture-evaporating surface area of your body.
For mid-layers, what you should wear under the rain jacket depends on your activity level and the outside temperature.
What should you wear in heavy rain?
Our Monsoon Gen.2 & Monsoon XT Gen.2 Tactical Rain Jackets are the optimal choice for heavy rain.
Built from 100% waterproof laminates and offering you additional features (like air/pac® inserts and our unique Hood/Harness® system), these jackets will definitely help you out in harsh conditions.
How long should a GORE-TEX jacket last?
GORE-TEX membranes come guaranteed to remain waterproof for their usable lifetime when given proper care. By waterproof, GORE-TEX means no water from the outside will penetrate to the inside.
Proper care means washing your waterproof garments regularly and following the manufacturers’ washing instructions. Doing so preserves the outer DWR coating. The DWR coating reduces the fabric’s surface tension. This causes water to simply roll off.
