These are great jackets - this my second one. Withstands serious wet weather and wind. I bought mine on the large side of what i would normally have - this enables other layers to be worn underneath if required, but it is in fact quite warm enough with just a T shirt even down to 7-8 degrees (assuming you are putting some effort in!) I particularly like the velcro wrist straps which stops the wind and rain getting up your sleeves. Chest pocket is perfect for phone, small wallet, keys etc. has a large 'bum' pocket at the back but i tend not to use this. Jacket is lined with a mesh and this helps to both ventilate and also seems to help keep the inside warmer too without the jacket getting 'clingy'.
