Nice Rain Jacket!

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Hooper123222 from Irwin, PA on Friday, July 24, 2015
I bought this rain jacket specifically for a trip to Ireland, where I knew I'd be out in the rain and didn't want the rain to spoil the day. This jacket did exactly what I needed it to do. It was light, easy to pack along, but when I needed it it really worked, from light drizzle to downpours to hard wind-driven rains.. 100% waterproof, breathable and not too hot when walking and active. The zipper front pocket kept my cell phone camera dry but ready. It also kept the wind from cutting through. In Ireland, it's always about to rain, so I was able to keep this jacket tied around my waist or in my backpack at all times. The Velcro cuffs worked well, and I liked how you could adjust the hood to a position for better fit and visibility, and the pit-zips provide more airflow so I didn't overheat inside the coat when active. I paid right at $100 with free shipping and I feel like I got a pretty good deal for Gore-Tex and this jacket was worth it. I'm sure I'll get lot's more enjoyment from it in years to come. There are lots of other jackets out there that may be comparable that I haven't used. But this one did what I wanted it to do and I think provided the value I was looking for.
