I was skeptical of this jacket at first since I usually go for brands like Patagonia or Arcteryx. But after wearing it for a few months and putting it to the test, it has definitely grown on me.

Reviewed by Amanda the cycle tourist from PA on Tuesday, April 26, 2016This coat survived a bicycle tour the length of south america. The waterproofing started to struggle after hard use of 11 months and from receiving sun damage. It was a great fit and nice for cold and hot weather. I bought it a little bigger and put my down coat underneath.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mountain Living from Washington State on Thursday, January 29, 2015Typically, I look for rain jackets with a draw cord waist, but it has been nearly impossible to find this "parka" style nowadays in a jacket that is uninsulated. Living in the mountains outside Seattle, I rarely need an insulated jacket when I am actively moving in rain and, when I do, find layers much better for moisture and heat management. A draw cord waist has also been essential with most jackets, or they tend to move opposite of my motion, which I find highly annoying. I chose this Sprayway jacket because it looked like it draped well, but with plenty of room to not be constrictive. I also wanted Gore-Tex since I was tired of lesser fabrics not withstanding more than a 20 minute downpour without leaking. Colors that blend into my surroundings are also a plus for me (Not just to please my aesthetic taste, but for safety -- Am I the only woman who thinks colors that scream you are female from afar are ridiculous?).
I was pleasantly surprised when this jacket arrived that it DOES drape extremely well and the fabric is very supple and not at all crinkly. It is extremely LIGHT also, which contributes greatly to its comfort, with a mesh liner, so there is no clingy feel when you sweat. The Gore-Tex works like a dream, with excellent beading. I am guessing it will give me good rain protection for years. I should note that I did not get this for long hikes, since it does not have pit zips for serious exertion. It is great for my less strenuous outings, such as short hikes, walking the dog, etc. I will take it on hikes when heavy rain is not expected however, since it is a great stowaway jacket, being so LIGHT and folding so compactly. The only complaint I really have about this jacket is the zipper-- perhaps it is just my particular jacket, but the bottom of the zipper is difficult to get aligned before you start to zip it. It won't zip at all if it is not aligned, though sometimes will, although it looks like it is one or two teeth off the opposite side. YKK zippers never have this problem! But, unfortunately, this is not a YKK zipper.
I should also note that I bought this one size up so that I would have room for underlayers. I am 5'6" of medium build and around 140 lbs, so I usually take a medium. The large is the right size with a heavy polar fleece under it, however the sleeves are overly long for me. This will be good in the warmer months when I don't need gloves, but occasionally want to tuck my hands inside the sleeves (they are just the right length for that), but right now mid-winter, I have to cinch them tight with the velcro strap so they don't slip down on my hands. When I'm wearing it to run errands I solve this bunching-up effect by simply rolling them up, which actually doesn't look bad-- more like an urban-minded jacket. In hindsight, I will probably buy this jacket in a medium next time and use it as a light jacket during warmer rainy weather.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by traveler from michigan on Monday, October 27, 2014It is a very comfortable fit and has many pockets! I took a large and probably could have done OK with a medium. I have not tried it in a rain storm yet however but I have noted that it does keep the wind out. I like the fact that it is lined and that the hood can fit under the collar..

Reviewed by jtb149 from State College, PA on Sunday, August 24, 2014I was skeptical of this jacket at first since I usually go for brands like Patagonia or Arcteryx. But after wearing it for a few months and putting it to the test, it has definitely grown on me. I was tired of the smooth interior of my last several rain jackets sticking to my skin and feeling as if they were causing me to sweat more. I also dislike the crinkly noise some of them make. I'm glad I went back to Gore-tex after many years of settling for the "new" waterproof breathable membranes. It really is still the best and creates a soft supple shell that is whisper quiet. The mesh lining is also a feature I've come to appreciate as well. Although it adds a bit of bulk to the coat, I think it's worth the cooling action when it is raining outside and you're sweating inside. The hood also has a small moldable brim that is a cool feature. It does not seem to collapse inward like other hoods have a tendency to do. I wear a size 12 and like the fit of the UK16. This gives me plenty of room to layer and nice long sleeves to cover my wrists even when reaching or stretching.
