Made out of breathable nylon and H2No material looks like it can hold the rain and wind at bay, so not only a rain gear item but also a stylish windbreaker. which is where Patagonia lost the high marks. The hood storage with a string and hook is poorly designed (it unfolds as you move), and the way the collar looks with the hood stored leaves a lot to be desired, it exposes the H2No white plastic looking material in part of the collar, which makes the jacket look cheap, and unstylish that cannot be utilized as a classy or stylish windbreaker. The whole collar needs to be fleeced with a soft material (ideally with the same color of the jacket), and the hood needs to be redesigned similar to the North Face Resolve 2 jacket which looks really nice when the hood is stowed securely and nicely. in the back of the jacket, without affecting the look of the collar, which allows it to be worn as a windbreaker. As far as fit, it fits well to the contours of my body, and since I have a 44 chest and around 6 feet, the jacket fits me like a glove without been too tight, and still with room to wear either my Micro-puff or Better Sweater as layer on those very cold and rainy days. I recommend it if you want solely a rain jacket on the trail, but this piece does not transition at all from the backcountry to the city at all. The collar is weird and not presentable at all in an urban setting. I hope it gets redesigned, because it does an injustice to the rest of the jacket.

I got the bittersweet brown color, size large which fits my 44 chest, broad shoulders, and 6 feet athletic frame perfectly, and I have to say it is the best, warmest, and high-quality softshell I've ever bought, the soft and silky exterior is unreal and the cut really stylish. I live in a cold and windy city during the winter, and this jacket has all I need, water and wind resistance, and even a warm fleece material in the interior. I wore it in 45-50 degree Celsius with a t-shirt and I was fine, which fits my needs since I find the layering thing impractical and vexing when you just want to take off your tie and shirt, slip into a nice and warm jacket and go out and enjoy the evening with the girlfriend or with friends dressed comfortably and casually without looking like you are about to climb Mt. Everest.

The jacket fits incredibly well and is very comfortable, warm, and stylish, and the best part is that it also blocks the wind which most jacket in this genre do not do well, despite on what is claimed. Probably most optimal for low forties to high fifties freezing and windy weather, otherwise it is not warm enough or too warm.
