Rated 5 out of 5 by Go Ahead. Enjoy Rainy Days. You know that feeling you get when you wake up and it's raining heavily. Umbrella, check. Boat shoes, check. We'll, this jacket is the missing link between the two. Waxed to keep water out. The cut is generous but customizable with drawstrings at the hood, hip and waist so you can tailor the fit. Tighten it up for minimal layers underneath and loosen it up to accommodate a sweatshirt. The hood is cut large with a bill and rubber buttons to open up the wrist fit. There's also a Velcro center vent on the back to help keep you cool without letting water in. Only weak point I've seen is fraying on button stitching and that's due to a very tight fit for the buttons while passing through sleeve/pocket holes. A great item for splashing through puddles on your morning commute. May 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great looking jacket, but a bit warm for rain I bought this jacket in yellow to channel my inner-lobsterman, and it fits the bill perfectly. The fit is a bit big, so size down, but once you get the size right it looks great. The waxed cotton fabric is nice and thick and has lots of character, but it might be a bit warm for a humid summer day in the 90s, when the thickness really comes in to play. Either way, I've got a thinner raincoat for days like that, so I'm really happy with my purchase. July 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Awesome jacket This jacket is pretty spot onto what I was looking for. An outstanding blend of fashion and function. It's summer and I haven't worn it in the elements, but the material and construction indicates it would be great in wind or rain. Hood is sturdy and big enough to wear over a beanie. My one qualm is that the insulation feels a little strange against bare skin. Meaning that if it's proper cold and worn over a sweater, you've got no problems, but in mind weather with rain, wearing this jacket over a t shirt might feel a little strange. Highly recommended though, great jacket at a very reasonable price point. August 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Waiting for the rain... This jacket is very nicely constructed, and the details are just right. I ordered this in yellow, and I was pleased to see that it's more of a warm, sunshine yellow than shown in the picture. This jacket is a little on the slim side in the arms and chest. Men who work out should definitely try this on before purchasing. August 6, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by zipper broke immediately The zipper on this jacket failed just outside of the 30 day return window, after being worn maybe 5 or 6 times. It was treated very gently and was sized correctly. Of course, it failed during a cold rain storm with the zipper stuck in the middle and the zip above and below stuck open. January 3, 2015
