Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs small
Do you want your rain jacket to keep you dry? Yeah, me too. If that's the case, you should probably look elsewhere. Do you like being soaked? Then this is the rain gear for you!!! In general, I love OR's products, and I wanted to love this too, but it's just an overpriced sponge; it literally soaks up every drop of water that falls onto it and transfers it right to you. I've tried using it numerous times, and even tried treating it with Nikwax... but I still get soaked every time. There is no saving this thing. Please, please, please DON'T waste your money. Looks like I'm going back to my heavy, non-breathable Marmot rain gear, because at least I stay dry.
