Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I use this as my "work" rain jacket persay, if I know I'm in a situation that I could ruin a piece of clothing. It works well for what it is, it's a plasticky rain jacket, with a material face. It's not breathable at all, feels like wearing a rubber rain jacket. I do like that it features pit zips for when you do get warm and clammy. The waterproof dwr coating holds up pretty well, just pop it in the dryer on high heat to reactivate if if starts wetting out. I've had to retreat mine because of the abuse I've put it through, but overall works well for what it is.
