Tested this out yesterday in the gloom and doom of a spring we midwesterners are having this year. I work landscape, which means unless it's pouring buckets or lightning, we keep at it. This is a great jacket because it is roomy, lightweight, very waterproof and best of all, has extra length in the ... Read More

    Had to replace my old standby & this jacket is perfect. Great for errands and walks, light weight, washable and comes with a storage pouch. Great price too!
  • Verified Buyer Reviewed by Nonukesgirl from NC on Thursday, February 4, 2016
    I got my husband and myself one of these jackets. We both love it. It comes with a cute little pack bag so the whole thing packs super easy. Its nice looking, roomy for fitting over several layers and the zipper works great. I haven't worn it in a drenching rain yet but in a light rain so far I've been warm and dry. This makes a great top layer. I'm so glad I purchased this.

    I got this for my husband, and he says it is perfect. Totally waterproof and breathable, and very packable in its little bag. Sharp colors too. I tried one for myself, but even the XS is way too big. It is in unisex sizing, and I normally wear a womens XS. I might get one anyway to leave in the car for emergencies.

    the material is top quality & is effective in windy & rainy conditions. The jacket & pants can be fooled into convenient packing cases with a drawstring.
  • Reviewed by Sundowner from NM on Monday, January 25, 2016
    This jacket is light weight, fits well, and very reasonably priced but would it keep me dry when needed? I put it through the acid test last summer in Alaska while cruising around the inland waterways for a couple of hours in a small open skiff in a steady rain. And it kept me dry. I'm usually reluctant to give out 5 stars but in this case (and with the rain pants) it is deserved.

  • Question “How do you clean this jacket? Do you apply anything to keep it's waterproof rating? ”
    Asked on 1/3/2016 5:35:28 AM by Hiker Mom from Maryland
    • Answer That's a really technical question that's best addressed by an expert. Maybe a call to the manufacturer would provide you with the specifics you seek as there are no experiments that I performed to determine the information let alone provide an accurate measure of waterproofness on a comparative basis.

      Call them and ask to talk to somebody in the lab.
      Answered on 1/3/2016 10:50:07 AM by Average American Apparel Shopper from The United States of America
    • Answer This jacket has a rubber type coating. Wiping it down seems the best way to clean it. Until that coating cracks, it will remain waterproof.

      Answered on 1/3/2016 7:55:25 PM by Girl that Golfs from Michigan
    • Answer i wash all my waterproof garments in cold water. i then hang-dry them, air only. as for applying anything, you could probably wash it using "Tech Wash" by Nikwax to help preserve the waterproofness buy honestly i haven't washed mine yet. and i probably won't unless it gets muddy or something. this jacket is at the lower end of the waterproofness ratings and a price that reflects that. it does stop rain but i don't think i'd want to stand out in a storm for an hour. this isn't a $300 rain jacket that you need to pamper. it's good for sticking in the car trunk in case of unexpected rain.
      Answered on 1/3/2016 11:11:12 PM by steve u. from san francisco
    • Answer The jacket is still fairly new, based on what I see from the material. I will likely just wash it with a wet rag or sponge. The test will likely be this spring or summer before I can truly try it on the hikes I intended. The labels do state it can be machine washed delicate in cold water and to hang dry only. If it gets really muddy or smelly, I will likely follow those instructions.

    • Answer You can wash it in washing machine. Not sure if you need anything to keep it's waterproof rating. I just washed my jacket yesterday in washing machine in cold water and it was just fine.

    • Answer Sorry for the delay. We bought these for our trip to the Galapagos Islands and just returned. The jacket comes with a stuff sack with the dimensions of 6.5" H x 12 " circumference. We used our jackets a lot on the ocean waters and land and they are a bargain for the price!
      Answered on 1/6/2016 4:15:10 PM by Scooter Girl from Montana
    • Answer Don't have the dimensions, but it's very compact. Of course the real trick is getting It back into the stuff sack once you get it out.
      Answered on 12/28/2015 8:57:49 PM by Brodda from Napa Valley
    • Answer You can probably squeeze it down (and maybe more-- it's very soft) to about 7"long x 3"high-- that's for a large jacket.
      Answered on 12/28/2015 9:08:24 PM by crk from cary, nc
    • Answer The stuff sack with the jacket is small - probably about 9x5x5 and if packed tightly with other things can squish down even more.
      Answered on 12/28/2015 9:19:41 PM by OliverG from SF Bay Area
    • Answer it's probably around 6" long with around 3" or so diameter - I'm going from memory. I was able to stuff it into the little bag with some effort. It was pretty tight though.
      Answered on 12/28/2015 10:02:39 PM by jrh from NC
    • Answer When you fold it up it compresses differently depending on how you do it. If you try three times the size of the bundle is somewhat different each time. So, in order to not mislead you it is strongly recommended that you contact the manufacturer for the parameters that you seek.

      Sorry.

I use flashing lights for reflective protection. Thanks, Bill the Runner.

    • Answer Not sure. It is possible that the logos are reflective. They are located on: the upper left side of chest, left side on upper sleeve, left shoulder blade and lower right front side. Just tested with a flashlight in hallway with lights off and did not really jump out. Hope that helps.

      Answered on 12/2/2015 6:56:40 AM by In the Woods from Pennsylvania
    • Answer I don't know what reflective qualities are. My guess would be whether the jacket reflects or absorbs warmth from the sun. I have only worn mine on actual or anticipated rain days when temperature was not high. I think that if it was warm enough for the jacket to generate heat it would be warm enough to take it off. It might be useful if using as a windbreaker to prevent body core temperature loss. It is rainproof my primary purpose in purchasing. Mine was on sale and a great value for the price.

    • Answer I'm a 5'2" female with, shall we say, ample hips. I ordered the large and it fits fine. Goes around my hips and zips up. Plenty of space in the shoulder area. If you like a snug fit, a large might work for you. If you will wear it over a sweater or other layers, or just like a looser fit, XL would probably work better. These guys are good about exchanges, so take your best guess and go for it. I'm looking forward to the predicted monsoons this year to give it a try.

    • Answer Don't buy it at ALL..not for REAL rain

      Reviewed by Sarah Yuster from Staten Island on Monday, March 30, 2015
      I read reviews and like the price, the look and thought this would be perfect for my daughter who was going to live on a research station in the Amazon Basin in Ecuador with other bio conservationists.

      She was excited as the living would be quite rustic but shhe was doing the work she wanted. I felt terrible when she told me, after returning home six months later that the jacket easily soaked through. Initially it was repellent, but could not stand up to real rainforest conditions at all. I wish I'd known this beforehand...would've spent more so she could have been comfortable.

      I tested it out afterwards, wore it out in a driving NYC rain and it did ineed soak right through

    • Answer Better yet, don't buy it at all. I got one for my petite 20 year old daughter who was going to work in the Amazon at a scientific (Tiputini) research station. She specifically needed waterproof wear as she was to be there six weeks with minimal electricity during a rainy season. I felt terrible when she returned home and said it was barely even repellent completely soaked through with a few minutes. I kept the jacket and tried it myself. It's decent as a wind barrier, but absolutely useless for wet weather protection. Did not return it because I'd purchased it several months before she left for Ecuador and she was there for six months..she went home to Boston and didn't give me the jacket till a month after she returned to NYC.

      There's a reason it's being sold on STP so cheaply.

    • Answer I think that hanging the jacket up is your best bet, do not keep it folded and tucked away somewhere if you don't want wrinkles. It will smooth our as you wear it too. The fabric is stiff so you will get wrinkles. This is the trade off for a super water proof fabric, hopefully it is worth it!

    • Answer The medium size is 25 3/4" in the front and 30 1/2" in the back. i measured from the seam where the hood is attached and in the

    • Answer I have the medium. It is 26 inches in the front from the place where the hood joins the jacket to the bottom of the zipper. On the back, it's 31 inches from the base of the hood to the lower hem. In appearance, when the jack is lying flat, the back is only about 2 inches longer than the front, but I wanted to start and end the measurements at an identifiable place, so that's why I chose the seam where the hood joins as a reference point.

    • Answer I think that the velcro on the hood is not to be used to store the hood but is rather a way to adjust the size of the hood. By tightening or loosening the velcro, you make the hood smaller or larger.

    • Answer The placement of the velcro strip is quite strategic and does not interfere with using the hood or keeping it out of the way if you are not using it. This jacket is terrific!

    • Answer OK, so I looked at the one we have... I dont think it is for rolling the hood up. I think it is for shortening the hood---- if you are wearing the hood and the hood is hanging too far over your face, you can use the strap and velcro to shorten the top portion of the hood to get it out of your face, maybe if its windy, it would stop the wind from catching the hanging over bit and blowing your hood off. Just a guess though...

    • Answer I can't figure it our on mine either - the two pieces it seems should be on opposite side of the jacket for it to work - one inside, one outside.....maybe that's why Sierra got them...lol...that's the "hidden flaw"

    • Answer I called the company and the lovely woman who answered the phone got one off the rack and explained the following to me:

      Is IS NOT for rolling up the hood at all!! It is actually for adjusting the snugness of the hood to fit your head better. Between the drawstrings on the side and the velcro, you can get a customized fit. She said that sometimes people will lace their goggle strap through there to keep them from slipping - good to know.

      So, I hope that answers your questions (sure did mine!)

    • Answer The velcro strip can be used to make the hood smaller. I don't think that you can use it to roll up the hood.

    • Answer I believe the velcro strip is not to hold the hood when you are not using it, but to adjust the size when you are! If the front of the hood falls over your eyes, you would want to shorten it up by relocating the loose velcro further down the attached velcro piece to hold it back. Hope this helps!

    • Answer The velcro on the hood is to shorten the length from the "visor" of the hood to the back so it doesn't fall in your face and cover your eyes. Let me know if that doesn't make sense and I can send you a photo.

    • Answer The velcro strap is to adjust the length of the hood. If you want the brim to stay up higher, you can pull it back and attach it. You might have a helmet on and need the extra length so you would extend the strap.

    • Answer Geez...I haven't really got here yet with the jacket. I have only used it once though so I will try and take a closer look soon!

    • Answer The Velcro on the back of the hood is to shorten the hood so it doesn't come so far down in the front over your eyes. This feature is normally only found on high end parkas, which was a pleasant surprise as using the hood is much more comfortable when adjusted with the Velcro.
      Answered on 10/8/2014 11:25:08 PM by Annie from southern Rockies
    • Answer I think the purpose is to allow you to adjust where the brim of the hood hits... for example, I want my brim to hit above eyes vs. at the nose, so I pull it down in th back and velcro it so it stays put.

    • Answer I am 5'8", but heavier. I ordered L And it was plenty roomy. The sleeves were much to long, unisex sized.

      I took a simple tuck at the seam of the elastic and it keeps the elastic band in place at my wrist.

      I was caught in a hail storm and the jacket kept me dry. Shoes and shorts were soaked!

      Good buy and good quality!

    • Answer Hi
      I am make, 5'7" and weigh 160 lbs. a medium is generously sized on me. I would agree with a small for you.
      The jacket is long, so it should be okay there too.

    • Answer I purchased a small and I am 5'4" and 140lbs. This jacket is long in the length and sleeves on me. It is roomy with just a tee shirt on. If you like your fit a little tighter I would go with an extra small. But if you don't mind a roomier jacket the small should fit you a little better than it fits me.

    • Answer I would definitely try the small first. I'm shorter, heavier, and very large-chested (F cup), and the large fits me even with long underwear and a flannel underneath.

    • Answer The only thing I can comment on is try on a Medium Male shirt, if that fits comfortably get a Medium. It is the shoulder distance you may need to look at. The jacket is easy to carry and has a pouch to put it in. I love mine and place it in my backpack for that just in case rain.

    • Answer I am 131 lbs, 5 ft 7" and got the medium. But I like a roomy fit and do not layer either. If you like a mens small, get that, but I think you might be happier with the medium, personally.

    • Answer I would suggest a medium for you. Small may fit for walking, but would limit your range of motion and comfort for biking.

    • Answer I would suggest going a size smaller than you normally would wear in a ladies jacket. If you have a store close by to try on a men's similar style do that. They are pretty true to size. I love mine.

    • Answer Small should work well over a tee or light shirt. If you think you might go heavy sweater, ever, make your decision based on your shoulder width.

    • Answer You'll need a large. Both my girlfriend and I upsized and it was a good thing. She is 5'3" and 140 lbs. A looser fitting jacket will breathe better.

    • Answer I bought this for my son, but I had my wife try it on who is 5'7" and 140 and a fairly athletic build and she said she would buy a small if you don't plan to layer it. Hope this works for you.
      Answered on 7/31/2014 11:18:09 PM by Superslug from Washington
    • Answer Depends on how loose you like your outerwear. This coat is pretty generously cut, so as long as the sleeves are long enough for you, the small would probably be fine.

    • Answer Im 5'8" and 135. I got the xs and it is still very roomy. Side note tho..I wore this in what I would call a "moderate rain" situation and it wasn't exactly waterproof. More like water repellant. Otherwise, a reasonable jacket for the price.

    • Answer I'm a full figured goddess - size 18 to 20 & I'm 5'7" - and I bought the XL. It fits me well - can zip it over my hips easily. The sleeves are way too long and I roll them. This is a very cheaply constructed garment but for the money, it should get you through a season. I wear mine infrequently. I don't know what to recommend to you for a size. I'd say it's true to size so if you wear a Small in a Columbia unisex jacket, a small should work with this one. I wish I was traveling with you!

    • Answer i assumed they were sized for men,i am 6'1" 220 lbs so i got an XXL it was still a little tight when i would sit down in my belly area but it fit for the most part,breathed and kept me dry at 5'8 140lbs i would buy a medium sized one,not used to sizing up women/females but as with anything else you would rather something fight a little bigger and looser than tighter a small might work for you but i am guessing at your body shape,if you have a bigger chest i would go with a medium,small/no chest a small,like i said i am not used to sizing up women looking back i would have gotten a XXXL but my XXL worked for Cape Town South Africa where temperatures change depending on where you go and in the winter time expect some rain,it worked for me as my last layer of clothing so i would buy it as an outer shell when wearing layered clothing,it is a good ,quality made product i will say that,no broken zippers or anything,and it packs well,just roll it up and put it into the case that came with it,can't really speak for women but it fits good for men,even large men.
