Tried it out this morning in the rain - a brisk walk of about 8 miles. Stayed dry and comfortable. Liked the ventilation from the under-arm zips; also the hood fitted (and worked) fine. The hood adjustment toggles are a little small - easy to operate with bare fingers, but less so when wearing gloves. Would have prefered a double-ended zip, but you can't have everything at this price. Very light-weight and packs small, which is what I wanted.
