I wanted a shorter pack away jacket for summer that also looked reasonable. I chose this one because it says that it's waterproof, not just shower proof. As it's still winter and far too cold to wear this , I've yet to try it in the rain, so I'm basing this review on the look and quality. Fit - I've sized up as I didn't want a fitted look. Style - it hangs well, is a good length on me - top of thigh (I'm 5ft 5). Quality - seems well made. I managed to fold it up and get it back into the carrying pouch really easily. The pack will easily fit into a handbag. All I need now is to try it in the rain!
