- Outstanding (Review by Jacob)
Very breathable, very comfortable. I wear it all the time: windproof so even if it's not raining I throw it on for my bike commute when it's chilly out. The kind of rain coat that I don't take off when it stops raining unless I'm hot because the stretch fabric makes it so comfortable. Breathability means it's not as water-blocking out as wearing a plastic bag would be. That's not what I was looking for, and I've put it through the ringer and stayed warm and dry. Additionally, I get compliments about it all the time. I'm buying one for my brother. In the top 2 go-to pieces of gear I've ever owned. Lightweight and pack-able. The cut is athletic; and I love the fit. I'm 170 lbs, 6' and I like the medium. It's a short cut on the torso, which is great for hiking and biking but I read one complaint about it. I have no issues with the cut; I love it.

- Nice jacket but needs improvement (Review by KingstonJoe)
I first tried this jacket in China where we were subject to a heavy storm. I felt the jacket was not waterproof in the arms but on closer examination this was not the problem. At the time I was in short sleeves and the jacket felt wet on the inside of the arm due to the cool rain. It seems the waterproofing interior conducts the cool temperature to the body.
In summary you need to wear long sleeved shirt otherwise to act as an insulator from the jacket. Otherwise your arm will feel wet and you will chill in minutes.
