Solid rain jacket

I wear my Reflexa shell constantly in Seattle (I'm now on my second one). The fit is tailored, size up if you want to fit a couple layers under it. I like the nice deep hood that you can adjust to fit over a helmet or snug against your face, although I wish the hood zipped off instead of folding down into the collar, because it makes the collar too bulky for my taste and I end up leaving the hood out most of the time.

My first Reflexa had a couple of minor issues, mainly that the anchors for the back hood elastic adjustments both came unstitched and also the velcro at the collar rubbed on the shoulder, causing the fabric to pill. OR offered to replace my jacket with a new one when I sent them a comment about it. The waterproofing on my new one seems a little less absolute then I'd like (the water doesn't pill up and run off), but I have never gotten wet while wearing it. I like the idea of the tunic pit zips, though I've used it backpacking a couple of times now and haven't actually tried wearing it as a tunic over my hip strap. The weight and packability is very good, and for the most part it holds up well to heavy use.
