I was at Pacific Trail Days and saw a one layer piece of fabric that was intended as a rain jacket type thing. MSRP was $170. It was on sale for 50% off. It just didn't make sense to me. I was interested in the idea, but I just couldn't justify spending $85 for it.
That sounds like the Helium jacket. Rab makes a jacket with the same Pertex Shield material, MSRP $185. Montane has a Pertex Shield jacket with an MSRP of $170. The Arcteryx equivalent (which uses a GORE-TEX material) has an MSRP of $400. I get that the OR jacket didn't interest you, but $85 was a smoking deal.
I went to this. There was a long line right at opening, and they let in 50 people or so at a time. So we waited a bit. There were some great deals, if you were the right size and weren't picky about color.
