Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight & packable Bought this jacket about a month ago. I wear a size 4, however, the small was too tight if I wore any standard clothing under it (long sleeve T-shirt or very lightweight fleece, light weight hiking pants). I exchanged it for a medium, which feels a little large, but the waist can be adjusted, and I can comfortably wear a pullover under it. The sleeves are too long, but I just fold them under. I have only worn it once in a light rainfall & it worked well. The zipper is a little difficult sometimes, but I very much like the slim styling, the extra length, the lightness, and the easy packability.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Difficult Zipper!!! I walk a mile to and from work, and can easily put in a couple more miles at work walking between buildings. In Oregon, it is nice to have a longer rain jacket. However, the zipper is a beast, very "sticky" at the bottom and difficult to unzip all of the way. I almost had to step out of it the other day when it took around 5 minutes to get the zipper to work. I am giving it one more week, then may have to return it. Other than that, it is lightweight, fits nicely (does run small), and is very waterproof.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice jacket, SIZE UP This jacket looks great but it runs small. I am typically a size 4 or 6 depending on the brand, so I ordered a size Small, as per the chart. When I put it on I felt like a sausage! It barely fits through the hips and I am not a "curvy" gal. It didn't bind, but it is quite snug (nothing like the photo) though okay through the shoulders. I will be exchanging for a medium once I figure out how to do so with a gift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight and Warm and Cute I was looking for a daily street jacket that functions similar to a Northface ski jacket (blocks rain/wind, keeps me warm), that doesn't have me looking like I was going skiing. This jacket exceeded my needs. The material is extra soft, lightweight and flexible. I can easily wear it over my suit jacket, and not look bulky. It folds up to small space which is useful when packing. Get one! You will be warm without being weighted down. The down side is the sleeves were 2 inches too long for me, so I had to have them hemmed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for traveling! Bought this jacket for our Europe trip in the spring. It was perfect! Love that it's lightweight, comfortable, stretchy, and easy to pack in the suitcase & backpack for the day trips. Definitely recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from shame about the zipper Trekked through Scotland for 5 weeks with this jacket and love everything about it with the exception of the zipper! It stuck at the bottom and I had to step into it for the final two weeks of the trip. Rather irritating to say the least. Hopefully they will redesign the zipper then I can buy another. This one is on the way back. Oh 3 of my friends bought one as well ( based on my recommendation ) and a couple of them have issue with the zipper as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Zipper was a dealbreaker Very nice and lightweight. Pretty cute for what it is. Runs small. Biggest issue- zipper is very tricky. And there are no snaps. Returned it. Sadly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fashion and function I am so happy with this rain jacket! I picked this up for a trip to Iceland, and it didn't disappoint. First of all, I got so many compliments on the style...it's perfect to wear around the city. There's a drawstring waist so it ends up being very figure flattering. Next, the water resistance. The first day I received this jacket, I took a 20 minute walk in a heavy rain, and stayed completely dry. When I took the coat off, I was concerned to see dark water spots on the lining. I called KUHL customer service, and they explained that this is the technology of the fabric working, and that I should hold a paper towel up to the spots to see if any water would transfer. Sure enough, it was dry. We did a lot of waterfall exploring on our trip, and hiked in behind Seljalandsfoss, and again, I stayed dry. The cuffs of the sleeve do not have water resistance, so your wrists will get wet on the underside, up to about 3 inches. I can't speak for water resistance of the jacket past a 30 minute mark, but I have a high level of confidence in the material. Wind resistance. This is a lightweight jacket, and functions well as a windbreaker. However, if it's cold you'll want to layer since it is not lined. I wore a tank, and long sleeve shirt and that was fine for the majority of my trip (40-50 degree F conditions), and I added a sweater for the glacier day/higher elevations and I was quite warm. I love the drawstring hood, you can cinch it up around your face, and the high collar will keep the water from running down your neck. This is one of my best investment pieces I've ever owned and I definitely recommend it.

Is the material on this jacket stretchy? Also, would this be a good cooler weather rain jacket with layering? I live in Juneau, AK so we get some cold rain. Thanks.

Asked by: Evonne
The material on this jacket does stretch, and is also a good choice for cooler weather if you layer. This jacket does not have any insulation on its own.

I bought last year's model on sale and discovered it has a large gap in front at the chin when you zip it all the way up. Also, when partially unzipped, the two sides flap up to hit your chin. Does this year's updated model fix this problem?

Asked by: ARussell
​Storm collars are meant to provide better weather protection than a jacket without a storm collar. The issues you described sound as though this jacket did not conform very well to your body shape. Since there has not been a significant change in the fit, we expect the fit to be similar to the jacket you bought.
