I love this jacket. I was apprehensive to buy it at first because it was to replace my favorite rain jacket but it definitely fits the bill!! I am so happy with it! It is form fitting, packs, light weight yet warm and durable and waterproof. I recommend this jacket to anyone who is thinking about buying a new rain jacket.

I bought this jacket in a small, hoping it wouldn't be too big, because that was the smallest available at the time and I was preparing for a short bike trip and needed a waterproof Jacket. I exchanged it just a week later, without having used it, for a Marmot Precip in XS when that became available in the "Barn Burners." (I'm a bargain hunter.)
This (the Millet) is a very nice jacket and fits true to size (yep, 6-8 is generally too big for me) and is very similar to the Precip. The blue color was very nice and i would have kept it if it fit better. I can't comment on performance as I didn't use it.
I gave a a four instead of a five because it felt to me that the Zipper went the wrong direction on the pit zips. You have to zip UP to open them. This felt wrong to me, as it's harder to zip UP because there's nothing to hold the fabric down at the bottom. The Precip zips DOWN to open pit zips which I prefer.
Millet has nice visibility on the hood, which is important for bike riding. The Millet hood seems to be a bit bigger than the Precip to accommodate a helmet.
