Bought this for my son to use on his BSA Philmont trek. Turned out he unfortunately needed the jacket a lot. The jacket saw plenty of rain on the 12 day trip.
Performance in light and medium rain was good. In heavy down pour it couldn't quite keep dry. Especially around the shoulder straps from his pack.
But as he put it : "Way better than not having a jacket!"
He said the jacket handled body heat well - he didn't sweat (more) while wearing it. No problems with zippers or anything else. Overall he was very happy with it and would recommend to other scouts looking for a good and relatively inexpensive jacket.
Thanks to BC for excellent service always!
