Great jacket for the price with all that it offers in line of comfort and protection for such a light weight jacket. Have not extensively tested jacket,yet. But have been in several rain storms, and it has held-up quite well. It is packable, and could be use as a wading jacket if not wading too deep in foul weather. Very comfortable cut and adjustable at wrists. Hood works well to keep rain off of face and stays open. Can be closed either with zipper or velcro. If there is a negative: Jacket is so wind proof that it has to be zipped/closed partially while walking; or if left open in the wind while walking, the wind will tend to blow the jacket off of me catching into my back like a sail. To add to the easy of the wind blowing the jacket off (if wearing the jacket open/unzipped), the material is very smooth compressed nylon/slick and slides off easily even without the wind. Don't know what to think about this, never had a jacket just slide off of me while walking if left open??? But, issue is easily solved if zipped partially at bottom, if you don't want to wear it completely zipped-up.
