I bought this jacket a couple months ago, since I live in Northern California and am in the rain a lot. I love to hike, run, and ride my bike. In addition, I am outside doing fieldwork every single day. I definitely needed something to keep me dry.
This jacket has been very disappointing; the past 4-5 time I have worn it, rain has somehow gotten in. All of my zippers were shut, the hood cinched, yet my shirt underneath gets soaking wet. I almost seems as if the fabric itself is not waterproof.
