Versatile well-made shell/rain jacket

Reviewed by absjr from San Francisco on Tuesday, September 27, 2016
I like the very adjustable fit of this jacket: waist and hem drawcords, hood adjuster with Velcro and drawcord, rollaway hood (took me a minute to find the collar pocket because it is so well-hidden by precise construction!), and cuff Velcro. As a petite, I need some of these to get the jacket to look like a good fit. Two-way zipper is also a must since the natural waist of the jacket hits my hips. The eggplant color is stylish, accurately shown on web site. Cannot comment on the waterproof breathable performance yet. Zippers all have generous storm flaps. Length is also generous and should cover the hips of non-petites well. (I think the model must be 5'8" at least.) I was hoping to use this with an extra layer (which could easily be accommodated) for skiing, but the hood barely fits over my helmet, with no overhang, and there are no extra pockets besides the hand-warmers.
