Big enough to swallow a helmet with an unusually wide cut, the only tool to tame this bucking bronco of an opening is one little Velcro tab on the back. Nothing is available to pull the cavernous sides closer to the face to help block the wind or hold the hood from inflating and flying away like a balloon in a stiff headwind.
I thought it was illegal on all 7 continents to make a hooded winter jacket for adults without a single drawstring in the hood?? It ought to be. Debating about paying someone to add that. In the meantime I'm regretfully returning this one.
First and foremost, I wasn't looking for something that was super "Warm." "But what's the point of buying any jacket, then? Isn't that the point of a Jacket? To keep you warm?" You ask.
Not really. I don't get cold very easily, I make an absurd amount of body heat, and if it isn't windy, a very light fleece, a hat, and some running gloves is all I need to wear at even the coldest months here in pittsburgh in my day to day life. This jacket doesn't have much insulation, but is wind (and water) proof. This means that I don't get hot while wearing my jacket and walk around, but also don't get chilled while waiting for the bus and a big gust of wind comes by. I hate wearing jackets usually because I have to take them off immediately after entering a building, or I will start to sweat. This also means that I end up having to awkwardly carry the jacket around in my arms. These two things are a big inconvenience to me, but with this jacket, I can wear the jacket indoors for a little while and not start to sweat. Big plus.
I also love that this jacket is waterproof. I would give this jacket five stars even if it weren't just because of what I just wrote above, but having it be waterproof is a huge bonus. I walked out of work a couple days ago after having been indoors all day, and was surprised to find rain falling. It was only my second day with the jacket, but having it was super convenient. If i'd have been in my standard fleece, I would have gotten soaked, but because I was in this, I stayed nice and dry.
The Jacket has absolutely huge pockets in the front outside, and a nice also somewhat large chest pocket where I usually toss a pack of gum or something, but it's big enough to hold my iPhone 6+ plus more. I wish this jacket had pockets on the inside too, but that's not a super huge deal.
For the fit: I'm a pretty big dude, and I'm tall. I'm 280 and 6'8". I have a pretty hard time finding stuff that fits. Usually I get stuff in XL, but I didn't want short sleeves, so I got the XXL. The XXL is bigger around my stomach and chest then I would usually like, but the sleeves and jacket are the right length, and I like the jacket so much that I'm okay with having it be a little loose.
The outer material on this jacket is really cool too, it kinda feels like neoprene, but kinda not. It doesn't really look like it should be waterproof, but it most certainly is.
If you are looking for a really awesome jacket that is wind proof, water proof, and has just a little bit of thermal retention, this is the jacket for you.

The soft shell is a nice touch without being noisy when moving around. The jacket blocks wind sufficiently. The jacket works for light to medium rain, and the short trips outside in heavy rain. I don’t think it’ll work adequately for being outside in heavy rain for a long time. The only negative I can see is the jacket does not have a draw cord for the hood. It only has an adjustment flap on top. Overall I’m very happy with this jacket.
