Summary

Love it!!!

Pros

  • Waterproof
  • Breathable
  • Roomy
  • Mosquito-proof
  • Attractive

Cons

  • Sleeves a bit too short (for me)

I went hiking in this jacket during a thundershower, and can attest that it was definitely waterproof and breathable! I am 5' 7.5," 130 lbs, 27" waist, and 32C. I am usually a S to XS in tops. XS was perfect for me in this jacket, and I wore a tank top and Lululemon Scuba Hoodie under it as well, with room to spare.

The sleeves were slightly short, but that's not too much of an issue (I think I have long arms) as I could just tuck in the bottom of the hoodie sleeves and tighten the Velcro on the bottom of the jacket sleeve to keep it in. The jacket is also mosquito-proof where it covers! Where I am, in northern BC, that’s a real bonus. 

I wouldn't say it's very warm, but it was designed to be an overlayer. The hood coverage is great. The colour is really pretty — I got the Fuschia with orange underneath. I love this jacket!

Our classic waterproof, hooded rain jacket is designed with upgraded features to keep you dry in spring 2013 and beyond. This fully seam-sealed jacket is constructed of breathable nylon HyVent technology with a soft, dry-touch barrier to eliminate the need for a lining. Stuff this highly compressible outer layer into its own hand pocket and carry it in your pack for accessible protection during a downpour. The Velcro storm flap covers the full-zip front to shut out wind and rain. A Napoleon chest pocket securely closes with a waterproof zipper to keep small personal items dry. Pit-zip vents allow you to instantly dump excess heat and cool down during stages of high-energy activity. A soft, brushed collar provides next-to-skin comfort when the jacket is fully zipped. The adjustable hood has a hidden drawcord system to create a close fit around your head that remains low profile. Tighten the hem cinch-cord to seal out the draft in chilly weather.
