Ultimately this is a cool jacket, although I wish that the sleeves were velcro-adjustable, or had a way to tighten rather than a zipper. I tested it and it is very waterproof, and the hood does tuck nicely back into its collar pocket. I also wish that the bottom waist edge was adjustable with a cinch cord of some kind. I ordered an XXS, and I am a petite woman but not beyond average, but this was still a bit baggy for my taste. There would be plenty of room for layering, though, so thats good. Overall, well constructed, just might want to look around a bit more if you're looking for an all season rain jacket.
