On paper this was exactly what I was looking for. I needed a shell jacket to layer over a down jacket or fleece with a removeable hood, adjustable waist and cuffs, waterproof/breathable membrane, and vents. It checked all the boxes.The hand pockets are on the small side. Not a deal breaker, but don't expect to fit gloves and other items in them.My biggest issue is that the coat runs big. I wanted something to layer, but I feel like there more than enough room for my layers to have layers. If you sit between sizes (like I do), consider the smaller size.
