Rainshadow Jacket Rocks!
Best rain jacket I've ever owned. Extremely waterproof and windproof. Just a caution about sizing. I usually wear a MED for other jackets but with Patagonia, I take a SM size. I'm about 5'8 and 155 lbs and medium build. Small size is perfect with room to spare for layering. Also note, that the sleeves will be a bit longer in this jacket even if everything else fits to perfection. Afterall, this jacket was developed by a climber. Very confortable and the cut is superb compared to many other rain jackets. Gore Tex it's not ,but the H2NO is much softer and I rather have this over Gore Tex. Bali Blue Rocks....I liked it so much , I bought a Black one too. Either way, you won't be disappointed with this jacket. Price is very good compared to other similar quality rain jackets.

Can wear it all the time
This Jacket is awesome.This jacket can seamlessly go between rain to sun, hot to cold and keep him comfortable all the time. It keeps him dry or warm without overheating. Great quality too!!

Good Choice (25% off is a plus... YES!)
I don't know why Patagonia doesn't offer too many jackets with a 2 way front zipper. I need a rain jacket and I got myself a high quality one with cool Gecko green color as well + waterproof front-zipper. The sleeves are a little loose therefore I can wear my TNF Delani under it and I still feel comfortable moving around. If I wear it by itself as a rain jacket, I like it loose anyway. In the last 3 days, I tested this jacket in snow, rain and sunny (Michigan weather for you). I couldn't tell the different between this jacket and my Gore-Tex shell jacket! The only complaint is that in the sun, it has the light smell of nylon odor to it. When I travel to the tropical vacation spot. I will take this jacket instead of my Gore-Tex shell jacket.

I've come to expect great durability, functionality, and style from Patagonia. This jacket fully met all my expectations. The construction is flawless and it works perfectly as advertised. Great rain protection and sized to permit some layering for protection from the cold.

It is a perfect jacket the arrangement of color, the functionality, gracefully, and all. I am praised by the friend. And, it will put on this jacket in the future.
