Tester Biographical Information:
Name: Andrew Buskov
Height: 5 ft 9 in (1.75 m)
Weight: 224 (102 kg)
City, State, Country: Madisonville, Kentucky USA
Date: March 2, 2011
I will be day hiking and multi-day hiking in areas of Western Kentucky,
Tennessee, and Indiana over the next few months, with two multi-night trips
already planned out.
With the past few months of cold over, it's time to start getting out more.
As we all know though, spring brings monsoon rains at times and hiking when
you're soaking wet can be just as miserable as hiking when you're freezing.
It is because of this that I hereby submit my application to test the
Columbia Peak 2 Peak jacket.
I plan on using this jacket in all types of inclement weather. While rain
will likely be the main form of precipitation, snow and sleet are still
common until well into April. I plan on testing how well the
ultra-breathable fabric really keeps the water out, if I get wet from the
bottom up due to the wide hem, and whether the zippers seep water. As many
jacket's I've tried work well at being waterproof or windproof, but not
both, I'm very interested in how well a breathable jacket keeps the wind
In short, I plan on wearing this jacket in all means of weather, and also
packing it for the possibility of bad weather. As with my other reports,
I'll include numerous pictures of the jacket for clarity.
Here is a link to my previous BGT reports.
