Review: Atlantis Resolute Jacket









Aaron from Customer Service gives us the low down on his new Resolute Jacket from Atlantis.



My old Musto Corsica jacket was just about done, so I was in the market for a new lightweight rain jacket with a roll away hood.  Something that one would think would be an easy find here at the toy shop (APS’s storefront) turned out took some searching.


I finally found it,  the Resolute Jacket by Atlantis. The team up in Marblehead nailed it with this lightweight 3 layer laminate jacket that features waterproof zippers on the front, the hood compartment, and the pockets. It also boasts waterproof PU closures on the wrist, a reasonably high collar, fully taped seams,



a fluorescent hood and elastic draw on the hem which combine to make a really well thought out jacket.  The features I listed make this jacket suitable for sailing in inclement weather for everyone aft of the companionway as well as a really nice around the town piece for sailors and non –sailors alike. As far as sizing the jacket runs quite large, for reference the rest of my kit, my Musto MPX smock and Gill OS2 hooded smock are size large but in this jacket I needed a medium
and it fits perfectly.

The lightweight and supreme functionality of this jacket make it a no brainer to bring along on a Wednesday night race if there’s a chance of showers or even to an Orioles game (other more winning
teams also acceptable) where if it rains or not, at least the giant front pockets could be used to their full potential.

I don’t recommend gear just for the sake of writing a blog, and this one is a winner.

Enjoy,
Aaron
