    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! We have gotten more rain than usual this Spring/Summer so I was looking for a light jacket that would keep me dry and not too hot on those muggy/rainy days. I purchased this jacket and am very pleased with the size, color and overall make. I would definitely recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dry Does its job. A little small so I can't wear a long sleeve shirt under it but keeps me super dry.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The MIGHTY PACKABLE jacket...Teen tested and approved I think this may soon be my teen daughters new favorite jacket. Since her school does not have any place to stash a winter coat, she only ever layers under a hoodie, sometimes wearing her thin North Face jacket if the weather is REALLY bad, but it is a bit big to pack around all day in her back pack. I wanted to get her a light weight versatile shell for both school and day hikes, that was water and wind resistant to put over her hoodie for better, packable protection on rainy or snowy days waiting for the school bus. She loves that it backs into its own pocket and by time it is in the pack, squishes down to the thickness of about 100 page notepad. This is thin material, but thin is not bad if its the right material. It is not gortex, but does have the water blocker on it or embedded in the fabric. It wont keep out a stiff arctic wind, but is fine for that early morning or evening swirling wind. the hood is awesome how it rolls/folds to help form the collar vs. zippper or snap closure. My daughter already asked for a second one!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from happy wife happy life Keeps the rain off my wife's warm layers. This is a very thin coat, but it is certainly waterproof. Seems durable so far, but she isn't rolling around on glass or rock climbing or anything. She loved the green color. Looks like mint. She is 105lbs 5'4" and we got her a small, which has plenty of room for a small fleece or thin mid-layer.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thinner than expected My daughter loves the rain jacket but it's thinner than I expected. I guess I was expecting it to have a thin liner but it doesn't. Still serves it's propose of keeping the rain off you but doesn't provide any warmth. My daughter said if she doesn't have a long sleeve on during a cold rain the rain jacket gets very cold.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rain coat!!! The jacket in the picture looks like it has some weight to it but in actuality it's thin. Perfect for when it's not really cold. Protects great when it's rainy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. I bought this jacket for days that aren't cold, but wet on the mountain. I've worn it a couple of time now and it very comfortable.
