This coat is waterproof and very breathable. This is my absolute favorite jacket and the one I reach for the most. Terrific lightweight, packable, and good stretch. Pocket placement is perfect, not too high and not too low.
Nicely made for a slimmer person than me, so unfortunately I had to return it. Huge side pockets with a plastic front jacket zipper of the type that may not last long.
I recently bought this for a trip to Costa Rica. I've been wearing it in the rain as much as possible to test it. It does well in the rain and water did not soak through. If anything, it may be too waterproof. I can see where internal perspiration may be a problem but it has huge pit zips. It looks good but the fit is on the slim side.
There’s always a reason that something on the clearance rack, I bought this coat and too it on a pretty rainy hike, after about 5 minutes my puffy coat under the raincoat was totally soaked, it’s weird becuase Gore-Tex gear has always worked great, but aparently not this time :/
Bought this rain jacket to use in Alaska & it performed exactly as expected. It was light, comforable & kept me dry.
Loved the fit, material, and sleeve length, but it wetted out significantly in 20 minutes of light rain.
