- Size Bought: Medium
I got this today and was unsure if I was going to have buyers remorse. From the second I put it on, I loved it. The greens are beautiful. I really thought the yellow green was going to be more on the yellow side but thatâs not true at all. I read reviews that it was tight on the hips and in the shoulders. I can relate with the shoulders - when I put it on it seemed a little snug but once you have it on you donât notice. There is also a zipper on the left hip. Iâd assume thatâs for ease of taking the jacket off. the material is wonderful. Itâs not plastic-y or gross like some rain jackets. It has three layers too, so itâs not plastic-y on the inside either. Itâs got a tapered hem at the waist so it covers your butt, but is the perfect length in the front. The hood has the little visor piece so water does not drip into your eyes. There is also a drawstring to make the face hole smaller. I cannot attest to the true function of the jacket, for itâs sunny and 50Â° today but I trust it will hold up well, being made by mountain hardwear with gore-tex.
For size reference, Iâm 5â8â and about 155 lbs. I got a medium.
