comfortable and waterproof

Verified Buyer Reviewed by mvd from NYC on Sunday, March 27, 2016
i have worn it in heavy rain twice, and it is indeed waterproof -- no leaks. it is not flimsy feeling. the fabric is not so thin that it clings to one once it is wet, like other waterproof (non-goretex) jackets i have had; it has a more constructed feel to it (though it can also be rolled up small for packing). i got a size large, and that is a bit too big for me in all dimensions. i am 5'5" and i am broad shouldered and usually wear a women's size 10 or 12, so i figured the large would be the right choice, but i could have gone with a medium instead.
the only thing i don't like about the jacket is the hood. i can not figure out what is up with the hood -- it is very large, so that the front part, with the little visor, hangs down over the top half of my face, covering my eyes, unless i pull the elastic cord adjustment thingies tight. if i do that, it is fine, but sometimes, you just want the hood up, not tightened around your face. with this jacket, that is not really an option. can't figure why the hood is so large.
