I've wanted a GoreTex jacket for a number of years and finally decided on this one. It was a great decision. I love the feminine shaping, roomy LONG sleeves, multiple zippered pockets, and a hood large enough to allow a knit hat. The contrasting colored zipper is a bit difficult to operate, though it may improve with continual use. The pit zips allow the side seam to open wide enough to reach interior pockets. I like that. The snow shield around the hips zips out---I won't need that. This jacket is intended for extreme conditions such as the plentiful rain we get in the southeast. I expect its versatility to serve me well for years.
