Use this for commuting ten miles per day, many times in the rain. Keeps me dry.
I don't think the Velcro closure is adequate. It is difficult to close all the way up to the chin top as velcro does not close securely.
Easily packable rain shell does exactly what its supposed to. Very visible. Under arm area is mesh which helps with breathability. Only downside, and its to be expected in this cheap of a shell, is that the jacket feels very fragile. Its best to hold the Velcro strips when removing the shell to keep from ripping the jacket up.
