I bought this jacket to be used as a rain jacket on a hiking trip. Luckily, we had little rain so it was hard to test its rain protection qualities, but it is bright and cheerful, fits well, and keeps the wind out. It was good for light rain -but I think it would be protective in a downpour.
Love the quality of this jacket. It is plenty warm and has a nice style. The downfall is the body runs terribly slim and the sleeves are a tad long. For reference, I am 5'6", 140 lbs, 34DD chest and ordered my normal size medium. While wearing a thin sweater, I could zip it but it was tight. No way I could wear a thick sweater underneath. The sleeves were a little long but not enough to worry about. On the fence about returning this. It is such a nice, warm jacket. I feel that sizing up wouldn't be an option due to the sleeve length. FYI - Others have reported the same concerns about this running small, so it's not just me.
