A well though out feature set on a packable Mid-Weight (by our standards) hard shell
Mountain Hardwear says:
The rain shell you'll always want to keep in your pack for when you need it most. 2.5L GORE-TEX Paclite with a PFC-free coating means it's environmentally friendly and the slightly longer length keeps you covered during unexpected downpours, whether you're commuting or in the backcountry.

Mountain Hardwear's Exposure/2 Gore-Tex Paclite Jacket is streamlined jacket with no excess features. All the zips and adjustments have quite long tags for ease of use with gloves. The Chest pocket is quite small but will fit a phone/snack but not much else. The hand pockets are interesting in that they have very long zips so they can also act as vents. The hand pockets don't have water resistant zips unlike the chest pocket so not suitable for keeping things dry.
The hood is helmet compatible and has single effective cinch at the back to reduce the volume. There is a useful stiff cap to keep the rain off.
The Exposure/2 Gore-Tex Paclite Jacket is BlueSign approved meaning it has been manufactured sustainably.
