I love this jacket! It has a great fit, tapered at the waist and hips. I am very busty but small hipped, and the cut on this is very flattering to my shape. The color is great. It's a perfect weight for spring rains, and waterproof means waterproof!
I do wish the hood was detachable, but it is not a major issue.

I wasn't sure how this product would be, but I am not disappointed. I wear it with underwear and a fleece in 10 degree weather and I am warm and dry. Great product and it fits true to size. Would purchase it for a gift in a heartbeat.

I'm planning to take this on a 2wk backpacking trip. I havent used it in camping conditions yet but wearing it around town, I'm pretty happy with it. It's long enough, has nice big pit zips and has a flattering cut. My boyfriend told me that at 1.2 lbs, its not lightweight, which is true, but I wanted something that would actually cut the wind and add some warmth. It's not flimsy, and that's what I wanted. True to size. I bought a medium and I'm 5'8" and big-chested.

I live in New England and bought this jacket running errands. The fit is amazing, I'm 5' 4" 125 pounds it fits great. I love that it is longer in the back which keeps my back side warm. The only negative thing I have to say is that I thought the Omni heat would be warmer. But over all a great light weigh jacket, oh and it has great pockets as well.

Great water and wind proof shell for layering, though runs small in shoulders. Normally wear an 8-10 M, had to return for a L to fit comfortably with a light layer underneath and for free movement. Just an FYI: hood is not removable.

Jacket is light and blocks wind. I used it for a weekend in Wisconsin snowshoeing and skijoring. Weather was -2F without the windchill. I was wearing my base layer, midlayer and this shell - was never cold! Also, my water spilled on my backpack and thought this was going to freeze my back. Well, althought the backpack was freezing cold touching my back, I never even felt it. I was doing intense snowshoeing backcountry hiking (there was various hills) the jacket never got wet with perspiration. When I arrived to the cabin, the jacket was dry and I could tell I perspired because the tag on the jacket was soaking wet, wow! The only reason why this is not a five star jacket is becuase it is very hard to zip-up which makes it very annoying. One comment I do want to point out is that when the jacket arrive from Sierra, the jacket felt very stiff and was planning on returning it for that reason, but I do have to say this feeling goes away and it's comfortable for winter sports.

Product too small, so I sent it back. Delivery was fast and jacket looked great - just couldn't zip it. Would have ordered larger size, but arms would have been too long. Will order again when I find something I want. Return was easy. Thanks.

I wanted a lightweight jacket that I could use for everyday use and for outdoor activities. I barely notice that I have a jacket on. THe sleeve length is perfect. I do not think it's loud when I wear it. I use it to walk my dog and it protects from wind and snow. I bought the XS and it fits perfect, even with bulky layers underneath. I also received many inquiries about the omni-heat technology, and I must say... it works!

I had been looking for several seasons to find a new shell to replace my 14 year old helly hansen gortex shell and this was FINALLY IT! The fit is great, plenty of room for layering underneath but still skims your frame. I've worn it in high winds and rainy weather and it performed perfectly. The omni heat technology really makes a difference but you don't overheat. I have longer arms and the arms on this jacket are a bit long on me. I normally wear a size 6 and the small fits just right.
