I am on a search and rescue team and on a recent carry out it was dumping rain and I decided I needed a more heavy duty rain jacket. I picked this one and I haven't been disappointed yet. I love the color, although bright it is very breathable and you are able to move freely without any issues! I am very happy with this purchase, it was exactly what I was looking for.
