Really Noisy

Reviewed by mikiek from SE Texas on Friday, February 27, 2015
Didn't even try this one on outside - boxed it back up and returned it. The external fabric is ridiculously noisy and stiff. Sounds almost like Christmas morning crunching up all the wrapping paper.

I had compared features with several other jackets - all had hoods which I really didn't want. This had the best features and including being able to "stow" the hood. That was a joke. There's one loop in back, so you roll the hood a few times (the brim keeps you from rolling it small & tight) and then fasten the loop. But the material is so stiff the hood immediately begins to unroll.

I had high hopes for this jacket. For other applications I'm sure it would be just fine, but it's not for me. I do give STP high marks for the easy return.
