    Default North Face White Rain Jacket

    I am perpetually looking for well made white jackets, I have 2 of these, one I am wearing and a spare, probably going to get another before they quit making them in white

    Are these for warm weather (i.e. no insulation)? Torrential down pour or light rain?

    I have one that is good for heavy rain but overkill if it is warm and not raining hard, this looks like the ticket to fill in the gap.

    not insulated, don't know about a downpour, don't train in torrential rain but adequate for the type of rain one might be out in

    Actually Renee, I just looked through the sight and they do have one for "torrential" wear! In White! In my size! On sale! But alas, can't afford it until I see how much my next vet bill will be. These look like really nice jackets, thanks for posting Dr. Ed.

    Thats exactly what I was thinking. That pvc stuff can make you sweat so much, that you might as well get wet from the rain.

    I had my local dog mushing gear shop make me up one of their Wind Anorak's. It's made with a white Goretex fabric and has done very well out in all kinds of stuff. It certainly breathes better then any Grunden's or Helly Hansen I've over worn. I thought it might be too 'crunchy' and loud when at the line but I'm pretty sure any of the issues I have at the line with my first dog can not be attributable to that. The pockets on this one are very convenient. They didn't have any zippers, velcro or pull tabs in white so I went to our local sewing shop, picked those up and brought them in to her. It's not cheap but you can go into the basement and see them sewing it. If you were to want to order one please mention Fairbanks Retriever Club!

    "Rain" the term is relative to wear you live.
