This lightweight, waterproof jacket is a staple for every outdoor enthusiast. Featuring an attached, fully adjustable hood with visor, pit-zips, and a hem cinch-cord, you'll stay dry hour after wet hour with this durable rain jacket. Engineered with HyVent® DT EC, a new material derived from natural castor oil from beans, this eco-friendly jacket reduces the use of synthetic membrane components by 50% compared to traditional waterproof materials.
HyVent DT: This waterproof fabric is lightweight, packable, and more breathable than other unlined treated fabrics. HyVent DT is created by applying a polyurethane (PU) coating with a DT print matrix which acts as a dry-touch, half-layer coating. The DT half layer adds durability and comfort by physically separating the HyVent DT PU coating from the skin. HyVent DT eliminates the need for a liner and is commonly referred to as a 2.5-layer fabric.

I bought this for a trip to Ireland in August and used it on a daily basis in all kinds of weather. We even hiked a mountain in Connemara National Park in the rain with high winds and it kept me dry and helped block the wind. I'm 5'6" and size 4-6, bought a small and if fit perfectly with enough room to wear a fleece underneath for added warmth. It also folds up very small to fit into a backpack without any noticeable added weight. Definitely recommend it!
The coat is cute, BUT if you are buying this coat to use as a "raincoat" and it needs to cover your head in rain, then the hood is too short. I wore it on an Alaska trek and constantly was reaching for the hood to pull it further forward. I would prefer to exchange it but, I will be charged for freight and dont' feel that is appropriate due to a poor design.
