by fromalmost there I needed a jacket as a standby because my prior technical shell ripped beyond appropriate repair. I know and trust mountain hardwear with other products but to me this just seems like more of a miss than a hit. the GOOD, it's light, short break-in period, packable and has a decent amount of stretch the BAD... I usually prefer "hand-warmer" pockets (placed at chest height) because i usually have a backpack at hand. another fault to me is the pockets placement how they are too low and too slim and the inside pocket makes absolutely no sense because it is placed right where the hip is. the worst of them all, the hood. i love the thought put in to the brim but it is WAY TO BIG AND HEAVY, if the jacket is not zipped up all the way then it is making the jacket drag off and if IT IS zipped up all the way, and the hood is down, it starts to choke, almost feels like a paper plate is inside of a normal hood that is down. when the hood is up, it covers too much area for you to see clearly and don't try to cinch the hood back or it will break (happened to me)

by fromLightweight and Really Waterproof Great for hiking and sitting through rainy spectator events. Perfect for keeping dry but not getting too hot. Runs small. I got mine 2 sizes large which was perfect to allow for extra layers for warmth when needed but it's still acceptable for with no extra layers. Hood works great if you flip the visor under for normal use. Leaving the the visor out works great for walking in hard rain only looking down but you can't see forward. Wondered about the non-waterproof main zipper but no leaks with the dual overlap flap so I now like having the more rugged and easier to use zipper on the one zipper that gets a lot of use.

by fromSo far, so good. I bought this coat mainly to use while riding my scooter. The only trouble is that I have not had the opportunity to ride it in the rain so I can not yet determine if it is extremely waterproof. I can say however that it sheds rain wonderfully, fits great, and looks good too. I'd say it's the perfect coat for someone looking to stay dry around town or out on the trail. If you're a casual outdoorsman like me and enjoy hiking and camping but you're not afraid of a weekend long rainy camping trip, then this is the coat for you.

by fromExcellent All Around Jacket I've had this jacket for about 1.5 years now, and I use it for just about all my weather needs. It's lightweight, comfortable, and most important: waterproof. I use it for commuting on my bike and hiking. The one downside I have is the zipper. Particularly the Velcro. Since it's only patches of Velcro, if you're bent over, or at any angle other than standing, rain can easily get in through the zipper. I plan on gluing strips of Velcro onto the zipper to remedy it.

by fromVersatility This jacket is a replacement of another Mountain Hardwear rain jacket that I have owned and lived in for the last 10 years. I had great use of the previous jacket and felt confident seeking out another of the brands' products. I chose this jacket due to its lightweight/low insulation and highly waterproof qualities. I heat up quickly when I put on a jacket, so this was perfect for me. It also has lots of fit options...changing the hood shape and size, adjusting the wrist cuffs, and providing a ton of ventilation with the pit zips. It is perfect for adding a touch of insulation or windproofing, and of course, it is awesomly waterproof in the rain. One caveat is that with the intense waterproofing comes a bit of noise as you move around. During the first few days, I had a hard time using my cell phone while strolling in my jacket because it was crinkling loudly. I hope that this will subside as I break it in, because it could be annoying to use as an 'all-purpose' light jacket. But it hasn't fazed me quite yet.

by fromMehhh I had this coat for 3 weeks and ir ripped while I was holding a box to my side, and opening my front door. I went to talk with someone at the REI in the Pearl, the gentlemen at the customer service desk accused me of cuttin it with a knife, and told me they do not stand behind the quality of these coats. Worst customer service I have ever seen at any one of your stores. Great hire REI, great hire..............
