I have only had this for a few weeks, but already a lifesaver in heavy, and long lasting rain. Lightweight vs my other 3L goretex jackets, packs up small and has plenty of pocket space. Pit vents and a two way main zip would make this epic. I find the arms too long, by 1-2 inches, but not a deal breaker given the build quality of the jacket. Picked this up at a discount, so good value for money too vs other big name brands. Highly recommended

This jacket does exactly what it says on the tin. It's comfy, with the right amount of space, so it never feels restricting. It keeps me properly dry, even in high activity in pouring rain. It has an extra layer of material where pack straps rub, which will sort the old problem of wear at the shoulders. It doesn't rustle, which makes it invaluable for moving quietly. It's long enough to cover the top of my legs. Great jacket.
