This jacket is pretty solid in all aspects. It's lightweight, durable, and stormproof. Some drawbacks: the zippers snag quite often, but the material is durable enough to withstand it. Also, the jacket lacks any real pockets. The front pit-vents are makeshift pockets, but not very secure. You also need to open the pit-vents otherwise the jacket doesn't breathe very well. The jacket comes directly to the waist which is a little higher/shorter than the average rain jacket, and the arms are a tad longer than the average rain jacket (I wear a 33/34 and the cuffs rest on my palms). But overall, it's such a solid jacket and you can wear it in any situation from cool, windy weather to a NW downpour.
