Very Good with Flaws

Reviewed by TSC from Santa Cruz, CA on Sunday, February 7, 2016
I am 5'8", 174 lbs, sort of thick in the upper body. I'm comparing this to the Arcteryx Alpha SV which I lost (stolen?) and that was my favorite rain jacket of all-time. This jacket fit snugly and was TOO TIGHT underneath my armpits. Also, this jacket, amazingly to me, does NOT HAVE pit-zips. There are some side zippers, but not pit-zips for under your arms.
This jacket is cut way differently than the Compulsion by Mtn. Hardwear, which is extra-roomy or tent-like.
The hood adjustments are limited on this jacket. I sent this jacket back because of the tightness underneath my arms. If it was tight in my living room, it would be annoyingly tight once bundled up and hiking on a trail.
The material seems to be of high quality and put together well.
