Quality at a good price

Reviewed by T.J. from Los Angeles on Thursday, November 29, 2012
I have this jacket in the men's version and just bought one for my friend. Appears to have all the same features. A big plus for this jacket is the fact that you can pack it in to it's own pocket. Stick it in your backpack and forget about it. Takes up very little space and is light. A little extra material on the hood creates a nice brim to keep the water off your face and it seems to be true to it's waterproof claim. The velcro on the sleeves and the material covering the front zipper is a very nice touch. The breathability however is so-so. I'm a "sweater' when I hike but, even so, the vent in the back doesn't seem to provide extreme breathability.

I did want to note that I purchased the "Faded Lime" and I'm not quite sure where the 'fade" went. Much brighter than I thought it would be as reflected by the photo. We'll see if she likes it or not.

All in all a quality jacket...particularly at the price.
