Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs large
Alright... My first impressions of this were not great. It felt and looked a plastic bag. It was also a little bigger than I anticipated. I am 6ft 220 and I could have probably gone with a Medium. I almost returned it but I got it for cheap and thought I would give it a try for a light pack emergency wet weather. I ended up pulling out the other day when it was humid, rainy and close to 75. It was a little warm in the humidity but it kept me dry in the deluge and I felt it breathed well. By that evening it had dropped into the 20s and we had three inches of snow. It seemed to work well in that as well keeping me dry, although it really didn't give me any kind of warmth. If you are looking for a general no frills jacket for summer showers on your hike that packs light, this should work for you. If you layer it with a thermal or sweater underneath it might work for colder climates but I don't think it would hold up long for heavy use.
