Hello everyone, I am new to the onebag world and am preparing for my trip around SE Asia. I have been reading a lot of articles and have been getting suggestions for Arcteryx, Marmot, etc jackets….but they are very expensive.

Recently I was shopping at Uniqlo and I came upon two selections. First was the Pocketable Parka which retails around $30 and it is very lightweight and protects you against the rain supposedly. Very similar feel to Patagonia Houdini which retails for $100 and more. http://www.uniqlo.com/jp/store/goods/400493-09

Next is the “Blocktech” Parka… lightweight, windproof, waterproof…almost feels like a brand name jacket like Arteryx. Retails for $60 http://www.uniqlo.com/jp/store/goods/400494-58

Has anyone tried these items? Imo they feel very purposeful and budget-friendly for onebaggers.
