Parka is light and compact. Has pit zips. Hood adjustment is spotty.

I used it recently on a cold, blowy, rainy Oregon day. It kept me *perfectly* dry. No sweat, no rain. Dry. Mi compadres, who did not have Gore-Tex outerware were damp and cold.

About the only thing I could wish from this parka would be velcro instead of snaps on the rain flaps for the pit zips and front zipper.

Overall, a good parka for a fair price (about $75 to $100 less than the boutique brands).
