Lightweight, As Described

Reviewed by NE Iowa Mom from Northeast Iowa on Wednesday, June 19, 2013
Bought this for biking and was impressed with the light weight, pit zips and overall feel of the interior -- smooth and slick, not the gummy/bulky technology of yore. Haven't tested it in extreme conditions on the bike, but it worked well in heavy rain while on foot.

I agree with other reviewers that the hood will not fit over a bike helmet. I also find it a titch shallow when I have my hair pulled up in a ponytail on the very back of my head -- hence the demotion to 4 Stars. But, for the little time the hood sees critical use, that's OK with me.

I'm 5'6" and 130 lbs, and the Small fits perfectly. Could get a couple technical layers underneath and retain full mobility, but it would be snug across the shoulders in a bulky sweater. Ordered Cardinal, and it is indeed a bright cherry red, not orange-ish.

Am surprised to see this tried-and-true design in the Closeouts bin. I hope it's not headed for discontinuation!
