First off, I can't believe I scored this jacket for $30 on Steep and Cheap. Incredible deal. It blocks wind exceptionally well, and I have worn it in torrential rain for up to an hour without anything soaking through. My only complaint is that it does not have a hood, but that's not what this jacket is for. If I really need a hood, I will pull out my Precip from my pack and put it on over this. A chest pocket would have also been nice, too, but I don't miss it. The under arm pit zips do a great job.
