I'm loving this jacket so far! The fabric is soft and comfortable, and i love the whole side zips for ventilation. I was in a very short (moments) but heavy rain, and stayed dry. The only hesitation is that the bottom hem around the hips is a bit close. I've unzipped the bottom vent zippers a bit for a little more room, and think that will work fine, for my purposes. If the hem was a bit roomier, it would be perfect.
