Fantastic light jacket for many seasons
I have used this jacket almost daily for 3-4 years; mostly used for 45-60 mins dog walks. Extremely pleased with the performance as it is tremendous at wind protection. It will stay dry in a light drizzle or short rain, but will soak thru in a prolonged rain. It is reasonably breathable, but moisture will build up on the inside of the outer shell in heavy use, however the mesh lining works well as an extra layer to prevent you from feeling the moisture. The hood is very light but is worth its weight in gold. I use this jacket for about 7 months in Canada. In warmer temps in spring and fall I find the lower arms don’t breathe as well as the rest of the jacket with the different liner material. However, I appreciate the micro-fleece cuff on the wrists in colder months. Love the Velcro cuffs. I wear this shell over several other layers in winter ( to - 25 Celsius) , and it works great (sheds snow wonderfully). I appreciate the hi-vis reflective piping for night walking. Very durable material for a light jacket. Washes easily. Overall a very versatile and functional jacket.
