I found this jacket to be vastly superior to any other rain jacket for a number of reasons. The hood will tighten around your face and prevent your hair from getting wet. I like the velcro sleeve ends that tighten without cutting off circulation to your hands. The zipper closes with two flaps over it that prevent any water from getting it. The material is waterproof but light, so it's been great for all sorts of adventures. Perfect!
This jacket is perfect for spring and summer days, when the it's raining. It will keep you dry. It's also a light jacket , so it's perfect for those summer nights when it's chilly. I took it to the beach and it was great for cool nights when your skin is kissed by the sun and the wind is cool flowing off the ocean. It's a got a have jacket. Did I mention I saved enough money buying it here that I bought my daughter one as well.
