all around great rain jacket
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I really love this jacket! I took it on a 10 day trip to the UK during some very warm spring weather recently and loved its fit, performance and materials. Fit: roomy enough that I could layer long sleeve sweaters under it when it was cold and wet, but trim enough that it isn't too lose with just a T shirt. I agree with the other reviewer that the bottom was a bit more snug around the hips than I prefer but had no problem zipping it over jeans/shirts and overall found it to be my normal size. Performance: super breathable, never felt the need for pit zips, excellent water protection, love how the hood has tighteners not only at the collar for the opening but at the back of the hood to fit smaller heads. Materials: I was really impressed by how soft, non rubbery, non-noisemaking the fabric was. I didn't feel like I was wearing a traditional raincoat. The material folded/rolled very nicely into a stuff sack. Very glad I made this purchase!
