I put this jacket through a summer of Upper Peninsula rain and a full week of backpacking in almost nonstop rain and wind in the Faroe Islands. I stayed dry and wind protected for 6 of those days, but it couldn’t quite hold up to the hours of downpour we had one day. The sleeves started to leak at the cuff and the water just slowly worked it’s way up my arms. The torso and hood stayed dry. It’s very lightweight so you don’t get much warmth out of it, but it’s great to layer with. The arm vents were great for cooling down. All the seams are holding up and I don’t have any tears from running around in rocky terrain. For the price this is a fantastic jacket and I highly recommend it.

*I ordered the XL to be large so I could layer with a heavy fleece and it’s exactly what I needed. I think the large would have been much more form fitting for my size if that’s what you’re looking for

I’ve use this wetsuit about once a week for the spring and summer months surfing in Lake Superior. I ordered the 10 tall and the only issue I have with fit is a gap at my lower back. The rest of the suit is snug, and it’s long enough for me at 5’11”. Water temps have been roughly between 48 and 60F so far, with air temps between 55 and 75F. For the warmer days the suit is perfect on its own and I actually heat up a little bit. During the lower temps I pair the suit with 5mm gloves and booties and it’s perfect (I’m purchasing a hood as well now that air temps are about to go below freezing). My only complaint is that I do get consistent water leaking from the back zipper, but I don’t know if that is exaggerated by the fact that the suit fits me loosely there. It’s easy to put on and take off and dries pretty quickly. I haven’t had any issues with stitching or seams, and the knee pads have held up after several good slams. I would definitely recommend this suit.
