Great jacket for the price.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Pinto Kroger from Charlotte, NC on Monday, May 24, 2010
Just got back from 2 weeks in Italy with off and on rain for much of the trip. I got one jacket for me and one for my wife (female version) I bought these jackets to be able to throw in my day pack while we were out exploring. The jackets weigh almost nothing, which was a HUGE plus. They don't get all wrinkly from being stuffed like my older rain jackets did. They kept my wife and I dry, and cinch up well around the face to keep rain out.

The single bad thing about the jackets are the breath-ability. This isn't gore-tex, so don't expect it. It is an inexpensive, extremely packable jacket to save your butt when it rains, and it does this perfectly. Yes, you will sweat inside the jacket with exertion and it will not let it out, so if that is what you want, get something more expensive.
