This jacket is ideal for someone who spends extended periods of time moving under torrential downpours.
I don't understand what they used to make this jacket because it the most comfortable thing I own, which I've never said about any of my past raincoats.
This thing packs pretty well, it sheds water like plastic, is super breathable but blocks wind.
I'm in between sizes small and medium, but went with medium and its perfect (for outdoor use). The sleeves are nice and long (hang past my hands), and the jacket hangs down over all of my pants pockets. This is a personal preference of mine in regards to outdoor jackets. 9/10 people would have probably gotten the small. The material is super stretchy, and MTN Hardware stuff usually runs long in the waist.
The hood has rubber bands you can pull to tighten around your head, and is also large enough for a helmet. Also, the hood has a bill, which keeps the rain our of your eyes. The collar is tall enough to cover your mouth from the storm as well, with some micro fleece in there to avoid scratching...
I could go on...
