When I first got the Cotopaxi Tikal Active Shell in my hands, the first thing I did was check the weather. Why? Because it made me want it to rain! There was no way such a stretchy and lightweight shell could be waterproof. It did not feel like any raincoat I had ever felt before. I subsequently wore the Tikal Active Shell every day until it finally rain. Has the “ultralight waterproof and breathable shell with four-way stretch, perfect for four-season backpacking, hiking, and travel” even remotely lived up to the hype? Perhaps I’ve kept my ancient crinkly rain coat in my closet for the really rainy days. Well, you’ll just have to read the first chapter of my review to find out!

I have worn the Cotopaxi Women’s Altiplano Vest almost every day this past month. I love it! It looks great, keeps me warm, and it is packable.
The Cotopaxi Women’s Altiplano Vest is lightweight, packable, made of ripstop nylon with a DWR finish, has knitted stretch material, and looks stylish enough to wear on the trail and around town.
