A very lightweight jacket with a flattering cut. Although the fabric is quite noisy to walk in, it feels soft against the wrists and chin, and is comfortable. The nylon fabric and taped seams do a good job of keeping water out, but as it offers very little in the way of breathability, you’ll get clammy when warm. Unfortunately, the collar is tight and low cut, and there’s no peak or cinch to tighten it round your face. That said, it performs well enough for use on good-weather days.
