Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 170 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

I bought this wind coat before a planned 30-mile hike/trail run around the Pemi Loop in the White Mountains. I wanted something light to pack in my hydration vest, that would battle light weather conditions. It worked well from a weight perspective, and we got caught in a real storm with 40+ mph winds and sideways rain. It wasn't enough for that weather, but, I didn't expect it to be - HOWEVER, it did work to keep me dry and comfortable after that storm, and throughout the rest of the day with intermittent wind and light rain. Love the color, the size fits perfect (Medium, I'm 5"10 - 170 lb) and I've worn it multiple times now in light storm conditions and it works well. Only complaint, and only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that there is next to zero ventilation; only two tiny eyelets under the arm pits. I tried running with this in a light storm in more humid weather and sweat through it from the inside out. So, at that point, I'd rather be wet from the rain than wet from my own sweat. But in temps under 75 degrees, for light activity and hiking, this piece is great.
