I bought this jacket knowing a Northern European work trip was coming up and the weather looked less than ideal. I needed a light/summer weight raincoat that was small and easily packable. This was perfect. The bonus was the interior pockets for train tickets/passport/phone/euros. Keeping my belongings safe and dry. I wore it the first 2 times with just a t shirt on underneath but then it got colder as I traveled further east, it easily accommodated a long sleeved shirt and sweater. The raincoat withstood spotty showers in Belgium, a torrential downpour in the Netherlands and was a fabulous windbreaker on a cruise down the Rhine in Germany. The only fault was I also noticed some hood slippage but when I tightened and then tied the strings it was secure and didn't fall forward or back. Rain storms are short but sudden and very unpredictable so I have worn this almost everyday here. Great price even at $119 but even better I got it at the $59.98 price. I've gotten more than my $$ out of it already. I got the black, more stylish on than in the pic above, longer length is flattering, cinch the waist abit (too much will make jacket look very boxy on top) add a scarf and voilà! Enjoy your travels or just a run to the local store in this little rain jacket!
I would recommend this product.

I bought this jacket for a 2014 early May Mediterranean Cruise. It was a good wind breaker for the deck and rainproof, keeping me warm on cool & rainy excursion days. The quality of construction was great! However I was very disappointed in the over-sized hood. I wear a 6 3/4 hat size so my head isn't large and my hair is flat, but the hood was so large that the front kept sliding down over my eyes. In order to see my path I had to tuck or pull it at the back of my head where the neck connects. I also bought the Poleta Peak and the hood was perfectly sized & proportioned to the jacket. I bought a large in the Poleta, but the Global Adventure was sized a bit large so I had to buy a medium. If a smaller hood could be used on the medium, it would be perfect. It is a snap on hood as well which is nice.
I would recommend this product.
