Rated5out of5byNorth Fork Gregfromgood productjust hiked Ben Lomand and Ben Nevis in strong wind and rain in this jacket; hood adjustments necessary for visibility and preventing hood from blowing off my head.

Rated5out of5byNMHiker1fromVery good jacketI bought this jacket for a rafting, camping and hiking trip in Utah. I did test it out before I took it on the river. It did very well in a downpour in Santa Fe. The jacket is very waterproof and does protect you from wind also. It did very well in protecting me in a howling wind. I really liked the hood, it kept most of the blowing sand out of my face. All in all a good jacket.

Rated5out of5byRuffellsfromSide Kick!Great jacket! I got it prior to hurricane Sandy, and relied on it to keep me dry and warm from the insane winds. I used it to help clean out neighbors' houses and protect my apartment. When paired with a down jacket / fleece underneath I can stay very warm, I would not recommend wearing this jacket by it self in the winter. It's only an outer shell.
I wear this as a rain jacket when commuting into NYC, walking to and from subways to my studio, and home. I never have to bring an umbrella because I stay very dry.
Great for outdoor adventures, very soft and flexible! When paired with another jacket, there is zero constriction, feels like you're wearing one jacket.
Also very durable, I was in a road biking accident this spring, a car hit me and I skidded across the pavement onto my lower back and arm, there was no sign of road rash on me or the jacket, no tearing or any noticeable wear at all.
I call this jacket a side kick, cause it is so reliable and never seems to let me down. I will hold onto this jacket for a long time.

Rated4out of5byHeysfromNice Light JacketI bought it after trying on about a dozen different light rain jackets @ REI and found this one fit and looked the best. I am quite pleased with this purchase after several weeks of use.

Rated4out of5byfocobufffromReally redI like this jacket for a lot of reasons. The fit is good, zippers are great and I think it's pretty stylish overall. I'm a tall guy (6'3") and the length is good. I would point out that the red jacket is really bright on the bottom half. Also, the velcro in the pockets is a little annoying. Otherwise great!

Rated5out of5byCBFlyGuyfromBest of all worldsThis jacket is great. Pricey, but you get all the bells and whistles you could possibly want in a wind breaker and won't need another one for years. Soft and relatively comfy compared to most other windbreakers I tried that felt like I was wearing a crispy tent flap.

Rated5out of5byJeff in LAfromGreat rain jacket!This jacket is incredible! I use it on my daily (14 mi rt) bike commute when it's raining, and I also take it on my month-long research trips to tropical Africa. This jacket performs well in both environments. And today I discovered how durable it is. I took a spill on my bike and flew over the handle bars and skidded on wet pavement, mostly on my right elbow. There was some impact to my left elbow and to my left shoulder. While the jacket now is dirty...it did not tear! My weak rain pants tore immediately, and I had to toss them. The jacket, however, barely shows any signs of wear. Only in one small place is the fabric damaged, and only just slightly. I would buy this jacket again in an instant.
