Now that rainy season is back, I just want to share how great this jacket is! I have used it regularly when commuting in bad weather and also on the occasional camping trip. I am pretty rough on the clothes I wear, but so far, over the course of three years, this jacket has yet to show any signs of wear or tear. In the peak of summer, the jacket can be a little overwhelming as it doesn't breathe very well, but during the months of fall and early spring it is absolutely great. During rainy season, I regularly keep it in my backpack since it both lightweight and effective when it comes to keeping my clothes dry.
