I love this jacket. This jacket is perfect for those paddle days where there is cooler breeze or light rain or if those mountan splashes come your way. It is so easy to take on and off when the weather changes, The tuck away hood is great to have. There is not much for pockets on it, but those are really not needed and add to the bulk. Its not very heavy, has wrist and waist velcro to tighten up. The zipper at the neck also makes it more comfortable and easier to take on and off. There is no rubber around your neck to feel the choke. I also got a size larger size which allows for layering clothing. Overall I am very pleased.
