golite tumalo pertex storm jacket
My husband bought this jacket last year while I continued to use my light weight marmot jacket. I was so jealous! His in a men's large weighed less that my womens small, and kept him much drier. After every downpour his jacket would let the water bead up and roll off, while my jacket was soaked on the outside and up the sleeves. This is the best light-weight rain jacket out there. We carry it on the bike and in backpacks on long trips for minimal weight. Like another reviewer, I am 5'5" and weight 125 pounds and need a medium so that I can wear heavy fleece under it in winter. I do not feel that it runs large. I usually wear a small or a medium but I don't like my outer garments tight. The garnet is a beautiful dark red. The red/canvas is really very white under the arms and down the sides.

This jacket is great! I bought it as a spring skiing/ rain jacket. It hasn't got a ton of use since the summer rainstorms haven't shown up, but it worked great in snowy conditions. The only thing that I am not a fan of is that the sleeve closures are elastic and not adjustable with velcro. It is very light-weight and easy to pack. I am 5'5" 125lbs and bought a small, I can still fit one warm layer under it for camping or skiing. It has a nice feminine fit and just a very small golite logo on the bottom corner (which I am a fan of since I don't like to be an advertisement). The hood is also great, it almost has a bill that seems helpful in the rain! The pockets are also very large. Overall, a simple, light-weight rainjacket that serves it function!

The jacket is very nice and light weight. In my opinion the jacket runs a little big, so if you are between a medium and small, I suggest you order a small.
