great construction-superior performance

I was a little bit wary to order this jacket, because my primary need was to stay dry....and only read a couple of dryness posts on the reviews....but had looked around at other name brand "waterproof" jackets and knew which features were needed to actually keep you dry. I also needed something lightweight (check), vented (check), and stylish (check). After using it for an hour in pouring rain, the dry feature definitely gets five stars! It was about 75 degrees out, and I was walking a brisk pace. I didn't get wet underneath the jacket and didn't get that suffocated sweat from plastic. The vented area kept me cool....and the hood was the perfect design for rain....it didn't drip water off the front, onto your face. There is a velcro feature on the back of the hood for different lengths of fit. Letting it all the way loose allows the hood to come over your face for heavy rain. Pulling the slack is for light rain yet still keeping your face dry.
The velcro around the wrists, taped seams throughout the jacket interior, velcro + zipper front, drawstring hoodie, and zipper pockets were all equally helpful and allowed me to stay perfectly dry for four miles of rain.
