wear Only in LIGHT Rain in a SHORT Hike!

Reviewed by Mai from Los Angeles on Friday, September 18, 2015
I purchased this jacket for my Canadian Rocky hike this summer. On the first time use, it rained pretty heavily for 45 minutes.
I tightly zipped up all the way, but the hood (and my head), the shoulders and the upper back got wet both inside and outside.
It was August but a very cold day, and the clothes that I was wearing under the jacket got wet too, it took away my body temperature quickly.
The hike was about 5 hours so I was able to go back to warm myself up in the car but if your trip is backpacking, it's dangerous to choose this jacket.
It was the only rain jacket that I brought to the trip, so I was very upset and disappointed by the result.
