Helloo! Wanted to see if anyone has a go-to Athleta jacket for hiking? Ideally for long hikes in cold weather/rain! I’m loving the look of the Whisper Featherless Parka but I’m worried it may be more stylish than functional. My second option is the Inlet Jacket. Would love to hear any reviews and experiences with these jackets — or any other ones!
Hi @Kylasarmiento, just wanted to offer some insight! Both the Whisper and Inlet have durable weather repellent (DWR) fabric on them and repel water. Both of those work as weather-proof and you would be fine in light snow; but if its heavy snow or rain, water could seep through the stitching.
