Verified Buyer Reviewed by Happy to be Dry from FL and CO on Wednesday, July 13, 2011
My original periwinkle jacket lasted 12 years and I replaced it with the same in a seafoam green a few years ago. They actually improved it by giving a more feminine shaping while still fitting wonderfully. Marmot kept all the wonderful features: the beautiful colors, the light weight, the pull cord at the bottom; the zipped and velcroed front closure that has a wonderfully reliable and quality zipper that always works and can be zipped all the way up to protect the bottom of the face; the velcro adjusting elasticized sleeve edges; the amply sized and adjustable hood that protects my glasses with a small peaked front, it's design means it stays put and it would easily go over other head gear; the pit zips keep you from overheating and the amply sized pockets have velcro and zipped closures. I've also worn it over a fleece in the snow. I'm thrilled to buy this flexible, indispensible and quality jacket at amazing Sierra prices.

The Spting and Summer weather this year has been unusually stormy and rainy in CO and I bought this third one so I'd always have one in the car and one in the house since my condo's garage is a walk. I also use it in FL in the many and regular downpour's we have there -- when it's not too hot.

When using an umbrella is useless due to high winds, serious rain, lightening or the fact that I'm carrying packages or I'm hiking this jacket keeps me mobile and bone dry!
