mist,not rain jacket

I benevolently gave this article a 3* because it doesn't really belong in the rain jacket category . The fabric is thin enough so that the mildest rain is going to cause interior dampness and the lack of any seam sealing is the coup de gras as far as any pretensions that this product is suitable in any rain , even a light drizzle. That said it is suitable for a misty type of situation where there is no expected prolonged exposure. As an emergency wind breaker it is probably in its best situation .Zipper appears robust but is not YKK. If you want to use it as a rain jacket you're going to have to buy a bottle of seam sealer and give it the treatment. I have enough of this type of jacket (not water proof but wind resistant and suitable for cold weather layering) but for the price it's not worth returning.
