I purchased this jacket for a water resistant outer layer for spring and fall hikes. Wore on a recent trip to the mountains this summer and it worked great, not just with wet weather, but also for the evening time when the temperatures dropped. It was not cold enough for a fleece but I still needed something to keep the chill off. This jacket was great for that. In the rain, I had no issues with the jacket.

      Brought this along on a recent backpacking trip. Packs down super small so takes up barely any room. Fairly light weight. Really waterproof and the underarm vents help a lot.

          I work outside in the elements. So I need a jacket that keeps me dry and is built to take some abuse. This jacket keeps me very dry and seems sturdy enough to handle anything thrown at it.

            I got this for my husband if you are between sizes i would order a size down personally. But TNF has the size reference to go by when ordering this jacket so I suggest using that to help on best size for you. We got this in the color Black. it's perfect as a rain jacket and great for travel, it packs very small.

              The jacket is unreal comfortable, light, breathable, ideal for rainy weather.
              Very comfortable hood, comfortable cuffs. The quality of the workmanship is at a very high level, as well as the material from which it is made.
              Now about the minor disadvantages, which I think, given the cost of the jacket, do not matter.
              First, it seemed to me a little longer jacket, but it's not critical.
              The second is a material that rustles a little at a walk, but it's also not so important.
              In general, given the price, this is a very good jacket.
              Thanks TNF

                            Great fitting and looking jacket. But lining doesn't last.

                              I like this jacket a lot. But the lining doesn't hold up. It begins to flake after a year or two. I have returned jacket 2 times already and all three that I have had have this problem. I can't beleive after 5 years they haven't solved this problem.

                              I bought this for my husband who recently started commuting to the city and walks about a mile to and from the train station and work. He is normally an L shirts, XL in sweaters that go over something. I got him the L in this and the sleeves are super long. The torso is a bit big but it would be good for wearing over layers in the colder months. I can't imagine him being a medium so we will keep this.
