Good packable rain jacket

Verified Buyer Reviewed by jda0104 from Cape Cod on Tuesday, August 11, 2015
I wanted a rain jacket to keep on my boat that would stow small and keep me dry if I ran into sudden rain. I've only been in a light shower since I got this and it kept me perfectly dry. The size does run large. I am 6'1" and 180 and the large fits me OK but still has plenty of room. It is long, which is good for keeping wait dry. The rear tail extends longer than the rest of it. The cuffs are elastic. I would like for them to have velcro closures so they could be more snug fitting, but that may not be a big deal. It does pack into the stuff sack that comes with it, but you'll need to be sure to get it rolled up very tight to fit. The zipper on the "wrong" side for a man is a slight annoyance, only because every other jacket I won is on the other side. Will have to give it a try in a real downpour, but I think it is a good item for a packable, light rain/wind jacket.
