I took this jacket on a trip to Costa Rica and was impressed with how well it held out the torential rain. It came in a bottle sized pouch that I was able to keep in my backpack the whole trip. My only issue with this jacket was the breathability of the fabric in the tropical weather.
All in all.. a good jacket
