How many times have your outdoor plans been scrapped due to bad weather? Certainly, poor conditions that affect safety are excellent reasons to take a rain check. But if your wet weather gear needs some upgrading, or if you want to get out on the water without wearing said water all day, check out the Mustang Survival Callan Waterproof Jacket.
The jacket’s fabric is MarineSpec MP, a mechanical stretch fabric that moves along with you and has a soft hand, so it’s comfortable even in times when you don’t need the weather protection. The three-layer construction is waterproof and windproof, yet is breathable, so you’re not sweating to death underneath the layers.
The lightweight jacket has an athletic fit that easily moves with you whether you’re walking down the street, hiking in a downpour, or boating on the water. Often, I find that sizing up allows me to layer underneath without minimizing a jacket’s performance. The Callan jacket is fully seam sealed to keep the water out, and also has YKK AquaGuard water-resistant zippers.
The adjustable draw-cord waist makes it easy to cinch tightly against the elements, and Velcro adjustments on the wrists help keep water from running up your arms when you lift them. The fitted Alpine-style hood is deep enough for a full fit, and turns with you, so you have full peripheral vision on your adventures.
Two hand pockets and one chest pocket (all zippered) are solid spots to store your gear and big enough to fit your phone and other larger essentials. Hang the jacket by its internal hanging loop to easy and quick drying, and you can head out into the weather again for more fun.
The Callan Waterproof Jacket comes in red, ocean blue, mid gray, and admiral gray, and lists for $299.99 on the Mustang Survival site.
