An inexpensive jacket and very light too, but this is reflected in the fact that it’s not very effective. With no hood, you’d need to be brave or really confident it wasn’t going to rain, and while the nylon ripstop fabric did a decent job of keeping the rain off, it doesn’t offer much in the way of breathability. The cuffs are elasticated and the hem lacks any adjustment at all. It also has no pockets. Perhaps best for running or cycling, where weight and pack-down size are more critical than a hood.
