A lightweight waterproof that is highly breathable and a hood that stows away. It packs down into an internal pocket and is ideal for a space saving shell that is waterproof and has the taped seams needed for ultra events.
Raidlight says: The Top Extreme is waterproof and highly breathable. A versatile and lightweight jacket that provides exceptional comfort thanks to it's use of MP+ membrane for durability and MP+ Stretchlight panels for increased freedom of movement.
Raidlight's Top Extreme is a lightweight, well designed jacket. It's ideal for use as a race shell as it packs down really well and feels much more durable than some of the other jackets in this lightweight category. It never felt like it would tear putting it on or stuffing it away in a hurry which is a big plus in my opinion.
With two zip pockets and an adjustable hood this is not a minimalist jacket. I prefer a hood that stows away so this is a big plus for me. However, the nice little feature that allows you to check your watch through the clear plastic panel is only good is you wear your watch on your left arm, which doesn't help me.
