Wore this Jacket for a number or rainy days in the Rockies last week, kept me very dry ...even when I was exploring a waterfall! It has all the features I could want in a rain jacket (pit zips, velcro cuffs, hood cords, etc.) but so much lighter than anything I've had before. It's packability also made it easy to stash in the top lid of my pack so it was handy for layering throughout the day. I'm a big guy, so it wasn't as roomy as other jackets, but it layered well for me (over a mid weight fleece and down jacket), and worked very nicely when wearing my pack all day.
