Great Jacket for a Petite Woman

Reviewed by Angela from New York, NY on Friday, September 2, 2011
I needed a waterproof jacket to keep in my backpack for late summer/early fall day hikes and short overnight trips, and this jacket is perfect. I'm 5'1", 118lbs, and have a petite, average body. I picked a size small in the scuba color and it fits perfectly with plenty of room to spare for a zip-up sweatshirt. I don't feel constricted whatsoever especially in the armpits. In the photo, the bottom of the jacket looks tapered, but there's actually enough room, so that it goes over my hips and pants without any problems. Initially I was going to purchase a medium because many of the comments said this jacket runs small, but I just don't agree with them. A medium would have been much too big on me.

I really like that it's lightweight and packs into it's own pocket, which saves a ton of space in my backpack.

The scuba color is a bit darker than what you see on your computer monitor, but lovely nonetheless. Also, I usually find that sleeves can be quite a bit long on me, but that wasn't the case with this jacket. Overall, this is a great jacket for the price.
