by DC Traveler GalfromLight and pretty but too hotThis jacket is very pretty. I ordered it in Petunia, and the color was much more intense shade of a coral then it appears online. Personally, i liked the the color. The jacket was also fitted and light. I also appreciated the ability to adjust hood straps. However, it's going back due to the following problems:
The biggest issue i had is with this jacket not being very breathable. For how light it is, it's incredible how hot it gets. Maybe if you were planning for a colder weather, but i was hoping for a summer-spring rain jacket.
I also found the sleeves to be a bit too long, and the zipper to get stuck on the occasion. Overall, it just doesn't seem to be a good value for the price.
