Industry Reviews

  • Will Rietveld, Ultralight Insights - Full Review
    • 'The Garamba’s eVent DVlite waterproof-breathable fabric is remarkable in terms of its comfort range; the best I have experienced. I was able to wear the jacket over a midweight baselayer and hike or ski hard in 15 to 50F temperatures without so much as unzipping the jacket.'
    • 'the Mishmi Takin Garamba Jacket is as cutting edge as it gets. It employs a combination of the most breathable air permeable shell fabric available (eVent DVlite 2.5-layer) with numerous ventilation features to create what can be claimed to be the most breathable hardshell jacket available. For that it merits an A+.'
    • 'Good fit and soft hand, It isn’t stiff like many hardshells but functions like a hardshell for snow sports, as well as a rain and wind shell for the rest of the year.'  
  • Peter Reese, Active Junky - Full Review
    • 'The Garamba is, without question, the most wind-resistant shell tested in the last 36 months.' 
  • Dave Marcus, Engearment - Full Review 
    • 'I definitely felt air movement through the laser-cut vents, especially the rear ones, which moved moisture away from areas that don’t normally breath so well.  No precip got into the laser-cut vent holes – they’re a winning feature on all counts.' 
    • 'Mishmi Takin got a lot of things right with the Garamba.  Using an air-permeable membrane was a good move.  Laser-cut vents should be adopted industry-wide.  Fit is spot on.'
  • Trudy Zufelt, Outdoor Adventure Gal - Full Review 
    • 'I prefer the jacket for night winter trail runs.'
    • 'I have three jackets I like for trail running but the Garamba jacket keeps out the wind best.'
    • 'The Garamba breathes better than other waterproof jackets'
    • 'The Garamba jacket outperforms my other jackets in wet rainstorms or snowstorms.'
