Fantastic! But had to return.

As others have pointed out this is a truly fantastic jacket - nearly perfect. Unfortunately I had to return the jacket because the hood does not have a cinch cord in the rear, so when I turn my head to the side the hood does not turn with me. I'm guessing this might be because the hood was designed to go under a climbing helmet, not over, but as a trail runner the system doesn't work for me. Truly unfortunate, I really loved the jacket.

A possible work-around would have been to wear a cap or visor underneath the hood. The bill would protrude a bit and help rotate the hood when you turn your head. This is not ideal, but it helps.
