I might have kept this if it was $10, but [$] for this cheap and gross fabric? And that's Sierra's "discount" price! For this price was expecting something like a Gore-Tex fabric--good looking, breathable, comfortable. This is like a cheap nylon coated with plastic. You'll find better quality on the $10 rack at your local discount store. Very disappointed with STP for describing this jacket as something better than it is.

Bought size S for my husband, and it was WAY too large. I would say this jacket runs a full size larger than stated in the sizing chart. Also the fabric feels plasticky and cheap. Can't believe this really retailed for [$]!

Great lightweight shell jacket! The black jacket with yellow zipper looks great. It's very breathable too. I wore it to class one day and kept it on all day throughout lecture, with the pit zips open, and not once did I feel uncomfortable or start sweating.

There's plenty of room to move and layer underneath.It's waterproof and plenty long.It would be nice if it were a slightly thicker material or had some kind of insulated liner that still allowed all the ability to move so freely.

I love this shell! I got to replace my last shell, a Columbia, that started leaking after two years of hiking. As soon as you put it on you can feel the quality, it is durable light and looks great. Although Orage isn't made for hiking and packing per se, this has done a great job so far for a very cold wet Fall in Ohio, and is perfect for layering. Note: it does have an athletic fit which keeps everything nice and snug when I throw layers on. If you want baggy go a size up.
