I have had this jacket for a couple of years but not had the opportunity to use it in very wet weather. The jacket does have a nice feel to it and is comfortable for walking. However, I have just walked a mile over a period of about 20 minutes on level ground in heavy rain and i am soaked to the skin. This has to be the least water proof jacket i have ever worn. Very disappointing for such an expensive item of clothing. I would have been drier if i had used a bin bag with a hole cut into it. I bought this jacket for walking in the mountains but could only recommend it for dry conditions. What is the point of putting waterproof zips on a jacket that has been made of non-water resisting fabric. Everything in my pockets was soaked. A real waste of money!
- Bad zip
- Not waterproof
