Had chance to test the Eddie Bauer Harbor Rain Shell on two fishing trips and during the recent storm, Cato. I’m happy to sat that it is lightweight, breathable, yet does a great job of keeping you dry.
It really came in handy when my recent trips to both the Esopus and Farmington Rivers were cut short due to rain. The StormRepel finish and WeatherEdge stitching allowed me a few extra hours on the water with no leaks. Best of all, the design gave easy access to both my gear and personal accessories.
Then on Wednesday, we had our first true nor’easter, Cato, a nasty mix of alternating rain and snow. I was outside “battening down the hatches” and giving the snow-blower a workout. The Harbor Rain Shell kept me dry and prevented the blowing snow from reaching my clothes.
In summary, I found it to be lightweight, comfortable with enough pockets to stow gear. It was effective at keeping out both rain and snow.
If you’re looking for raingear that works on the water or off, the Eddie Bauer Harbor Rain Shell should be considered.
