I've had this jacket for a bit now, and it's been good so far. It works as advertised, and I've had to use it a few times, and so far so good. I've had to wash it once, and I did notice that that one wash in the washing machine wore out the fabric a bit. It's still good though, and serves it's purpose well.As for style, it's a a very nice jacket... for rain. It's a bit swooshy, and the fits a bit bigger then I like(it is a rain jacket after all), but it is still wearable in public.
