Got this for Christmas for myself. It is generally a very nice jacket, and I like the brown color. It is good camo for fishing. It replaces a Marmot jacket I have had for over a decade. That one was quite heavy to pack in gear for wilderness trips. This one is much lighter, but still quite waterproof. I have tested in in some hard (one hour plus) walks in pouring rain, and am very pleased with its waterproofing and breathability. I do wish it had pit zips but hey, I rarely used them anyway.
The BIG drawback is the zipper. First, its left hand. I knew this, and I can get used to that. But the zipper is very difficult to thread correctly, and feel like it will not last very long. Hence the three stars. Otherwise, I would say a solid four or maybe even five.

Needed a lightweight, breathable, waterproof jacket for working and volunteering year-round in extreme conditions. This jacket fits well and I can wear layers underneath. Works great. Love the red color. Stands out well when I need to be seen.

You cannot zip a liner into this jacket, however, it's meant for layering - you'd wear this over a fleece jacket or other inner layer jacket, with this one on the outside for wind and rain resistance.

It does not have a zip in liner. I sized mine to allow me to layer under it and it works well.
