Although, this jacket is extremely waterproof, we really have to give it that, for everything else is completely useless. Windproof is some kind of okay, but don’t relay on this jacket to keep you warm when you get dry, and believe me you will! Because breathability in this is the absolute worst. I can’t come up with worse piece of garment to compare it with. Do not even think going to some serious hills in it. Its just so not breathable, you get dry very quickly and then, if you are descending or if wind is too strong, you just start getting cold. Also, size fit is nightmare!!! I am usually wearing M/L, by size chart on their web site I went with L in this case, but it is so so big that I am confident that S would be best fit for me.
