I have 3 of these jackets, they are my secret to cycling in extremely cold weather. I can go hours out in 5 degrees, and unlike more expensive jackets, they are classically cut to allow many layers under the jacket. I also carry this jacket in fall for those warm days and cold nights. As far as heav...

The color of the jacket was not as it appeared on the website. I was looking for a darker color that would't show the mud when I kayak. When the jacket arrived it was clearly not going to serve the purpose.
There is one snap at the very bottom and 5 velcro fasteners along the rest of the flap up to the hood. The seal is good in conditions I've been in. I suppose if there were a very high wind with the rain coming sideways, the flap might gap a bit when the wind hit it from the right side, but short of that kind of very heavy wind, the seal works well for me.

It has one snap at the bottom and a few velcro spot all the way up the jacket. I've never had a problem with the velcro coming undone, but I also haven't been out in a hurricane with this jacket.

There is a button at top and bottom and Velcro in-between. I bought them for twin grandsons and they were put to the test on a week-long wilderness canoeing trip in Quebec. They were pleased with them. Hope this is useful.

Hi. . . It doesn't strike me as excessively noisy, but it does make a noise as the fabric slides over itself. As long as you are just walking, the only sound would come from where the arms slide over the body, but I've not noticed it to be irritating. If you are sensitive to this sound, though, it may bother you a bit. The waterproof fabric tends to make this swishing noise. I hope this helps some.

I happened to have a Marmot Precip jacket and I tried them to see which one is noisier. The result: both made similar noises. Hope that helps.
Unfortunately, there are no pit-zips. I used it for the summer in Iowa and had plenty of rainstorms and it worked really well. However, it does not breath well in warmer weather. After the storms, when I would take the jacket off, there would be a layer of moisture on my skin. Generally though, if you are not going to be using it in hot weather for longer than an hour at a time, I think you would be alright. Although, if you are planning on using it for summer hikes, I would look at getting something more breathable.

No, it is like an old-fashioned rain slicker, only much much lighter. I would use it in rain in the summer since it's light, but it's not something you'd wear on a hot day if you had a vented alternative.

Measure your chest with your regular jacket on. Use that measurement as your chest measurement when selecting a size. If you click on the sizes the chest measurement the size fits will be displayed. I. E. Sizes Available: L (Chest 42-44) So if the measurement you have with your jacket on is 42" the large should fit over your jacket.

It is the right side hand pocket. It will have a zip pull that says packable. There is another pull on the inside of the pocket. To pack the jacket into the pocket you will turn the pocket inside and stuff the jacket into the pocket then zip it closed with the pull that was on the inside of the pocket.
