Can't Beat The Price

I was looking for a lightweight goretex jacket to replace the one I gave to my Mom. So many of them are just a bit too heavy, or don't have a big enough hood. This jacket is almost perfect - note it has few bells and whistles. This is a basic goretex jacket. There are no pit zips, and it has no inside pockets (which is why I rated it 4 stars instead of 5). The outer pockets are huge - plenty big for your hands and a few other things. It has a small chest pocket (outside) for your iPod/phone/whatever. So my only complaint - I prefer at least one inner pocket to stash a few things in while traveling.

The hood is good sized, and the sleeves are plenty long (with Velcro tabs). The length of the jacket is great, it will cover my butt. It is a medium fit - not too loose, not too fitted. I found the STP sizing guide not too helpful - size 38 (which they say is a 4) fit me perfect with room to spare for a fleece underneath if needed. I'm a size 6, so ignore the STP guide and go with the Euro sizing, they run pretty true.

I can't say I've tested the jacket yet - but it seems like a great goretex jacket for under $100!
