Good jacket to grab while on sale.

Nice jacket for the price. Pretty warm, water and windproof (a bit noisy though, but not too much). Hood and pockets lined with soft fabric. It does run big though (could be the brand thing? My SD rain jacket runs big too). I usually wear medium in other brands for heavy weight fleece layer underneath, or small for a slimmer fit with lighter layers. I can wear this jacket in XS with a cotton fleece hoodie underneath. It's also cut straight, tighter around the hips, roomy around the waist. But when it's on, it looks pretty darn good, if you don't size up too much. I'm 5'7" and about 140 lbs, size 8 in bottoms and S in tops. One annoying thing about this jacket is the stiff zipper. You have to keep it unzipped down to the collar bone if you don't want the top of the zipper to curl and dig into your chin/neck.
