Re: Darien Hi-viz
I owned an standard Darien for nearly 10 years. Loved it! Only truly waterproof garment I've ever owned (same for the Darien pants). However, mine was black and in Texas it was too hot to wear in the summer. I've since replaced the jacket with the Darien Lite in Tan and I love it even more. I can wear it in high humidity up to the low 90s. I still need a mesh jacket for the really hot days but the Darien Lite covers a very wide range of temps, is totally waterproof, and still offers excellent protection. If I ever wear out my original Darien pants, I'm going to replace them with the Lite version as well.
