Great jacket, big hood

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Patricia from NJ on Tuesday, September 18, 2012
The stretch fabric is relatively soft compared to most hard shells, which makes it very comfortable, and it has a 2-way zipper, a big plus. The helmet-compatible hood (which I didn't need) is very large, but it has 2 back pull-cords, one that adjusts the sides and another that will pull it back from the forehead. I have to pull the hood in a lot to keep it out of my eyes, so the excess fabric makes the it look a bit wrinkly. The red is a nice neutral red, but I would have preferred it without the gray slash on the sleeves. It's a good length, not too short. I haven't worn it yet in the rain or for vigorous activity, so can't attest to it's waterproof or breathable performance. I'm 5'4", 110 lb. and bought a S, which fits perfectly with or without a lightweight fleece under it.
