Rated5out of5byM. StewartfromWas warm to 30 degreesI got this jacket to wear on a trip to Alaska, and it worked great, I wore my raincoat over it for an extra layer and hood. Overall I'd say it is windproof but not waterproof as it soaked up water and did not repel it. This jacket stuffed nicely into my daypack and I whipped it out every time we stopped for a snack/water break. I do like all the pockets, and the fact it even has a sunglasses pocket so they don't get scratched. I scrunched the jacket up into it's own pocket and used it as a pillow on the plane ride home. Very please with this purchase at the closeout price!

Rated5out of5byTabithaCOfromGreat light jacketThe picture doesn't do much for this jacket; glad I took a chance on it. I got this jacket in blue (it is a very nice deep blue) and was surprised how soft it feels. It is a very functional jacket with 4 big pockets for phone, travel doc, keys, etc. I got this for cruising Alaska and cool weather in San Diego (since the thick jackets are overkill here). This jacket will get a lot of use.

Rated5out of5byJudyJudyJudyfromLOVE this jacket!I just love this jacket. The cut is much more flattering than the picture suggests. I was considering the Patagonia Nano but it cost 25% more and didn't have the internal pockets which are KEY for me. The Nano is a tad more flattering but not worth it for what you lose in internal pockets. I was looking for something that was very packable and lightweight that was warm and I could layer. I've never worn a more comfortable jacket. The cut is perfect in the arm pits, the neck collar, the sleeve length and where it falls on your back. Many super useful and well designed internal pockets, including one on outside arm. The jacket does not look bulky when all of the interior pockets are full. Love that it packs into a neck cushion or lumber support. I look for reasons to wear it all the time. Can't say enough about it. If in doubt, buy and try it. REI always lets you return product. But you won't return this one!
