I was on the fence on whether or not I need more outdoor jackets, but if you are deciding whether or not you should buy this jacket, don't hesitate! I can see what the rave about Fjallraven is now. This is probably my most favorite jacket out of many that I have. It hasn't rained hard enough to comment on the resistance level without the wax but I'm not too worried about it. I'm 5'11" 195lbs and deciding to get a medium rather than a large and I'm happy with the decision. By itself it fits perfectly with my body with a slim fit feel while also allowing enough room to use my Montbell Thermawrap Pro down jacket underneath. This can easily be used as a year round jacket.
