not for REAL rain

I read reviews and like the price, the look and thought this would be perfect for my daughter who was going to live on a research station in the Amazon Basin in Ecuador with other bio conservationists.

She was excited as the living would be quite rustic but shhe was doing the work she wanted. I felt terrible when she told me, after returning home six months later that the jacket easily soaked through. Initially it was repellent, but could not stand up to real rainforest conditions at all. I wish I'd known this beforehand...would've spent more so she could have been comfortable.

I tested it out afterwards, wore it out in a driving NYC rain and it did ineed soak right through
