Great Fall, Winter, Spring rain gear

This rain gear is not meant for summer wear. I wear this as my outer layer in a 3 layer scheme while backpacking and walking my dog in the Fall, Winter, and Spring. Works great as an outer layer meant to be windproof and waterproof.

Good for the price

Fit is Goodman it will keep the rain off. Breath ability not its strong point. Does what is should at a good price

OK for the price

It will keep you dry, in cold weather. In hot weather, it's a sweat machine. That being said, it's not a $200 Gortex jacket and its performance probably shouldn't be compared to one. So I guess I like it for what it is, an inexpensive, light weight, easy to pack, weatherproof outer layer for cold weather.
