Canada Goose speaks quality. I own the product couple weeks and test it in rain and windy days here in NY/NJ area. The jacket is very functional and has excellent rain repelling capability, keeping you dry. It also blocks wind pretty well. Layer a fleece inside and it will keep your core temperature. For this high quality jacket, the zipper doesn't match up to its name. When you close the zipper, the bottom zip keeps on coming up when you sit, making the lower portion open. No inner pocket(s) is also an inconvenience (I guess they figure during the wet and windy weather, you don't want to open the jacket to access the inside....). There is a phone jack port, where you can connect your headphone from inside to your MP3 Player in the outside chest pocket. You can have a clean look without wire dangling outside of jacket, or simply protect your non-water proof remote headphone dry. For Canada Goose lover, this rain jacket is also an conversation starter as most of owner have the heavy winter armor (I have Expedition, providing absolute warmth even in sub Zero Fahrenheit environment). For spring and fall, rainy seasons, this is a very nice jacket to have. Like a pine cone, the membrane of this jacket closes during cold, and opens when it is warm. Jacket is also semi-resistant to soil, making cleaning easy (I have a white one). Despite the set-backs I mentioned earlier, I think the plus out-weights the negative. I don't like rain and wet seasons, but this jackets adds a little fun to those gloomy days. It is stylish and not necessary give you that outdoor look (i.e. jacket over your suite to go to office). I will recommend this jacket.
