Waterproof? Yes. Breathable? No.
on 28 May 2013
I am very disappointed in this jacket considering all the other positive reviews I read before buying it. I bought this jacket because I specifically wanted something with good breathability. It looks good and is definitely waterproof, however it seems a lot less breathable than other cheaper jackets in my experience. Following a 45 minute walk in steady rain in a temperature of around 10 degrees, my arms and head were both wet with condensation/perspiration, despite having the armpit zips open. I expected it to be better than my normal waterproof coat, but it was significantly worse.
