Outdoor Research Enchainment Jacket - REVIEW
The Enchainment jacket is made with two different types of fabrics. The underarms are made with stretchy and very breathable Schoeller® fabric with NanoSphere® technology. According to the OR website, Nanosphere technology allows water and dirt to run off the jacket. Apparently it remains resistant to water after frequent use and numerous washes.
At the top, on the inside of the zipper, the Enchainment jacket has a small section of microfleece which is super comfortable against your face.
OR states that the Enchainment jacket will remain waterproof in everything other than the “burliest of downpours.” I found that I remained perfectly dry after an hour of walking in steady rain. I am always curious about how long a soft shell can stay waterproof, but have not had this jacket long enough to test this.
