I love this jacket (finally, a hood with drawstrings on a rain jacket!) and my only complaint is the zipper, which sticks and seems very cheap/plasticky. It's not enough to make me return it, not by far. I've been looking for a great rain jacket for probably 4 years, and this is the best I have found!
Update: 10/22/16: I've had this jacket now for a year and I'm changing my review from 4 to 5 stars. The questionable zipper has held up perfectly and the jacket itself is perfect; warm, breathable, not too heavy, and durable. I managed to snag it on a sharp piece of metal and put a tiny hole in it, so I put a very thin layer of clear nail polish over it and it's held just fine, not even noticeable. I plan to buy another, one to keep in my car, and I will probably get the purple or a slightly darker color this time because I'm a bit abusive towards my coats and there are a couple of small dirt marks on this one now. I wholeheartedly recommend this jacket!
So my conclusion: it is highly functional in the camping environment, very well made, and cute. Excellent quality and a great look. I am very glad I bought it, and I would highly recommend it.
The fit across the shoulders and in the arms is slightly tighter than I would like. That said, it's still not too tight to wear a hoodie underneath. It would be uncomfortable to wear multiple layers or a heavy sweater under this. I got the extra large and am currently a size 14/16.
The quality appears to be quite decent with nice stitching and sturdy-seeming material. The proof will come when I actually wear it and we see how it stands up to use. I don't see any problems in the workmanship. I like how light it is. The color is great, exactly how it looked on my computer screen. I love the reflector strip because it means that I won't have to wear extra reflectors when I go running at night.
Bonus is now these yellow "Mackintoshes" seem to be all the hipster rage (which is perhaps it's only drawback ;-)
Exceptionally multi-functional addition to your wardrobe.
