I recently purchased this jacket because i moved to a town with unpredictable and often wet weather. So far I have used this jacket about 3 or 4 times and each time it has served its purpose well. the hood is a little small, it covers my head, but does't stick out enough to completely protect my face. Other than that feature this coat is great and I would recommend it to a friend. It's especially great for the relatively cheap price !

Just what I wanted
I was looking for an attractive waterproof jacket and this is it. I had a chance to try it out the day it arrived and was very happy to have it. I stayed dry and warm. I'm almost 5'4", 115 lbs and ordered the medium. It fits nicely over a t-shirt with room for a thicker shirt too without being boxy. The sleeves are a little long but the velcro straps at the wrists fix that easily. The only drawback is that it's not breathable.

This is the second OR Palisades jacket I have owned only because I thought I lost my first one, was devastated, and immediately ordered another one. I absolutely love this jacket. I work as an outdoor instructor and have gone through several jackets. This one always holds up and is one of the more waterproof pieces I have. I also love carrying this one back and forth because it zips into it's own pocket, making it hard to find an excuse to leave it behind. I'm 5'4 and about 125 and the small fits me well. I've tried on a medium and it fits a little bigger and boxier, but still get's the job done.

I just received this jacket in the mail today and couldn't be more pleased. It fits nicely, I love the color, and it did its job in keeping me dry while coaching. The material itself is very lightweight; perfect for the mild temperatures in the Pacific Northwest. It is quite the noisy thing though, scares my cats half to death. But that's less of a complaint and more of a passive observation.

Great knock around jacket
Purchased this as a running jacket so that I wouldn't mind if it got beat up and sweaty. It works great it vents nearly as good as jackets that are $200+. I think it works great for running.
