not as fitted as in the picture
on March 28, 2013
First of all, i chose this jacket because i thought it would be fitted and more flattering than most boxy rain jackets. Unfortunately it is not as fitted as i hoped. My height is 160 cm (5'4") and my weight 47 kg (104 lbs) so i bought this jacket in size XS. Sleeves are long enough but the hood isn't. I have the impression that this size would be ok for someone shorter and heavier than me as size XS is still quite baggy.
I bought it in black and don't particularly like the white lining, as it makes it look very cheap. A black lining would have been more stylish.
I wore it twice in heavy rain and it did keep me dry. So, no complaints about the material.
I thought i would be able to wear this jacket for hiking, traveling and going to work, but because of its shortcomings on the style front, i now use it only for hiking and backpacking.
On the plus side, it's lightweight and easy to pack.
