Rated4out of5byfromWorked wellWorked great in the rain, excellent value. Served perfectly as backup in case of rain. Of course less breathable than more expensive ones ( I presume) but I didn't want to spend hundreds on an item that I used occasionally. Was perfect for the 1.5 out of 9 days on our biking trip in France when it rained. Would recommend.

Rated5out of5byfromGreat lightweight jacketGreat jacket and great reduced price. Would have paid full price in the store. This is a great lightweight jacket. Fits well and like the longer sleeves. Haven't had much cool weather yet. Color is very visible. Also like the way it folds into the back pocket for stowing in a bike bag or backpack.

Rated4out of5byfromExcellent JacketI had a pearl izumi jacket that had zip off arms and the zipper broke after about a year. Took it back to REI and ended up with this jacket, which I actually like a lot more. Much more windproof & water proof. The only drawback is that it is a little bulkier and heavier that the PI, but that explains why it performs better. It is worth the extra bulk and weight in my book and I'd recommend it.

Rated4out of5byfromLightweight and breathable!It's lightweight, bright but not very breathable! Could have had more pockets! But overall a greatbuy if you are looking for a bright stylish, casual wear to wear on a slight cool weather.

Rated2out of5byfromToo hotGood jacket for cold weather. Too hot above 50 degrees. I'm soaking inside the jacket, even with it unzipped.

Rated2out of5byfromNot DurableI originally purchased this jacket for commuting in wet weather. The first few months it held up nicely and kept me dry. But the main problem with it was that it did not last more than a few months. The seams started leaking on my shoulders and than the inner layer started peeling off. Obviously when it rained on me it became less efficient in keeping dry.
