- 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.
