This jacket is a great buy. Becareful of sizing though: I bought a medium expecting it to be snug, but I had to send it back and order a small. Don't worry about return hassle: The return process was a dream! Especially if you talk to Trish!

I've had this parka for about 2 years.The zippers are bad news and very delicate. Left pocket zipper failed on mine (teeth separated from the zipper tape). I doubt I cycled the zipper 50 times before it came apart. Here's what SD says on their warranty page: "Sierra Designs guarantees that the materials and workmanship in every product we make will stand up to the use for which it was designed." Seems like they should replace the zipper, but they claim that they literally cannot do it because of the zipper and pocket design and I'm just out of luck. They offered me 50% of 3 more SD products instead. Yeah right, spend more money on their products. Come on, build good stuff and honor your warranty SD.

I really wanted to like this shell. First, pros: the cut is good albeit a tad short in torso. The color was good and overall styling nice. Weight was super light.
That is where the fun ended. After less than a year and only a few rain outings the waterproofing has completely given out and appears to be reacting to the water (not good for a rain coat) and actually crumbles and came off on my hands when I took the coat off the last time after a 6 minute walk in a heavy shower. The waterproofing went on the hood, back, shoulders and front. Next the zippers albeit waterproof were next to impossible to get to slide while on, especially the pit zips. As I had to wear it as it is my only shell, today I went to open the pit zip and the entire zipper ripped free of the arm. Now I have permanent ventilation!!. The stitching was bad on many areas (loose threads etc). In general, the poorest quality build and components I have seen. Do not buy this jacket expecting a technical shell that will hold up to anything.

I purchased this jacket for my boyfriend for rainy days when he needs to do errands around town and for hiking. It fits well and looks good. It's light enough to stuff into a day pack. He likes the numerous pockets where he can stash things.
