Rating the jacket after only one rainstorm

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Biking Bubbeleh from Boston on Monday, August 18, 2014
I bought this to wear when I ride my bike. It's a lightweight jacket that comes in a stuff bag and I thought that would be perfect. I have only worn it through one New England thunderstorm, but it wasn't on a day I was biking. It was a very heavy rain, and I didn't get wet. I believe that the fabric was breathable, but since I wasn't on my bike, I didn't get to test that very much. I liked the way the fabric dried when I hung the jacket after I wore it. I got a size too large, but decided not to return because I think in a few months I'm going to want to wear this over sweaters. (Also, I have a very large bosom, which for years has meant always sizing up.) The jacket is unisex but a Men's XL is a lot bigger than a women's XL. The cuffs are elasticized but not adjustable like the hood and the bottom of the jacket, and they are a little long on me. I rolled them up. I'm pretty sure that is going to work on the bike, but not 100% sure.
