The Mountain Equipment Zeno Jacket is a great light waterproof jacket with additional ventilation built in. Underarm laser cut venting with a bonded protective layer allows moisture to pass freely as well as allowing air to circulate. Cut with an Alpine fit that's combined with a Mountain Hood the Zeno is a superb choice for the climber and Alpinist requiring a packable jacket in case the weather turns.
The Zeno has a 30 denier face fabric with a textured weave and utilises Mountain Equipment's own waterproof coating, Drilite. Drilite is described as a 'hydrophilic, Monolithic Polyurethane Membrane', what this means is that it is a layer of non-porous polyurethane thin enough to allow water vapour to pass through its molecular structure, this is the breathability. It's a great choice for every day use in the hills and mountains providing a waterproof and windproof barrier. As the fabric is so light it is very packable making it a great choice for travel as well as serious trekking.

I picked this jacket after searching endlessly on the reviews of various makes. This one was recommended by a friend. It also needed to be very light. It has lots of good features too. It has yet to be tested in heavy rain so hoping that will be a success but otherwise it fits the bill perfectly.
