I was looking for a basic lightweight rain shell with "pit zips" for ventilation while exercising, and this jacket does the trick! I've already used it a couple of times in moderate rain, and it's kept me dry. The zippers near the arm pits allow for good ventilation, and the hood keeps me dry without getting in the way. I also like that the sleeves are long enough (I am 5'10" and often have a problem with too-short sleeves).
The only suggestions I would have to make this jacket better are a smoother zipper (the sealing material makes it a little hard to zip up), and a hanging loop on the inside (there is currently one on the outside).
I would recommend this product.

Bought this jacket for my fiance in the black colorway. Jacket looks really sharp - especially with the shiny waterproof zipper in front. She really likes the fit of the jacket and enjoys having the underarm venting. Being able to pack it into it's own pocket is another awesome feature!
We've been caught in a couple downpours so far and she kept extremely dry underneath. Excited to test out the EVAP technology a little more - after we head out for some weekend hikes.
I would recommend this product.
