Lightweight protection

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Pete from Kansas City on Saturday, April 23, 2016
I've only had this jacket a week or so, but I've already had the chance to test it in the rain. The finish on the jacket repels water nicely, although I wasn't in a downpour for an extended period of time. One thing I did notice was that the part of the jacket under the straps of my backpack did not seem to repel water quite as well as the arms and front. Maybe my backpack rubbed away the water-repellent finish? Also, I'd definitely recommend ordering one size down. I wear M in everything (5'10", 165 lbs), but I had to go with a S in this jacket, and it is still roomy enough to layer a hoody underneath!
