This jacket is great for what it is - a packable, easy to wear rain and wind breaker. It is not very breathable but for an ER jacket it's perfect. The ft is great and not boxy like some as it has nice lines.

This is a good item to have around for mild, wet weather. However, it is NOT waterproof, and it is NOT breathable. It will not keep you safely dry in cold, rainy weather. In hot, rainy weather the condensation inside the jacket makes me just as wet as if I were not wearing a jacket at all. BUT for those in-between times, when rain pops up, it can be handy to have in the glove compartment. It is quite durable & stands up to abrasion well. Comfortable, lightweight, good fit. Just don't count on it to be a part of your safety equipment in the backcountry.

This was for my daughter who is stillg growing,so I wanted and inexpensive, lightweight rain jacket for spring/summer showers while hiking. The only con is the ventilation, but hey, you can't expect everything at this price.
