Real Customer Reviews
Likes: I haven’t had a chance to test the waterproofing of this jacket, but I love the functionalities of it. The fit is true to size. I would normally wear a small, but I ordered a medium for layering and it’s perfect. I am 5’7, 130 lbs for reference. I plan to use this for trail running, so I love that it can be packed down. I also love how you can adjust the hood so you have full view of the trail while using the hood.
Dislikes: I bought the scarlet color which looks more like a deep pink online (at least on my screen it does). When I received the jacket it was definitely more of a red color. I decided to keep it anyway.

Likes: I love this jacket; the way it fits, how light it's, and the way it feels; it's like having a second skin ... I'm sure it will perform great in rainy or windy days ...
Dislikes: I like everything
