I bought this from Thane store. Overall good product. Wore it through daily travelling, there is no problem at all. But while riding a bike, it fails to stop the water from coming inside the jacket.
As I ride frequently, I thought of buy this product with such high cost. But it fails to be true to it's promise i.e. waterproof.
I bought this product with the fact in mind that I wanted a jacket for the rainy season which would have a purpose afterwards also.
The store gave it a 2/4 for rain protection and 2/4 for breathability.
While the breathability may not be as great, the rain protection was far better than advertised. I was caught in the middle of a heavy shower in the traffic of Mumbai while riding my bike and while my helmet covered my head, this jacket didn't let any water in once I zipped it up to the top. I even had my phone in the outer chest pocket and later when I pulled it out, there wasn't a drop of water on it.
Great product in my opinion.
P.S. It gets unusually warm. Not a limitation, I'd say.
I brought this rain coat to use when am riding my motor bike. It's an excellent product. Not only suitable for hiking but also it's preferable for biking. I like it :-)
Bought it for the daily commute on my bike for this rainy season. The fit is good. Love that even in harsh wind with rain I could easily use this and make my way on the road quite comfortably. dries off really soon. love the pockets. its worth buying for the travel as well as for hiking. cant wait to try this during hiking.
good product. NO complaints.
As mentioned I thought this jacket is waterproof. But I was wrong, the water was entering form zip line. An my phone went useless because of water. An the material on the collar stinks.
I just got it three weeks before and I was waiting to test it. Few days ago when it rained heavily, I used it. I was in a downpour for half an hour and not a drop entered inside. The best thing is, it kept me cool. Normally the other rain jackets makes me feel sweaty, this one kept me cool. And the inner chest pocket accommodated a large smart phone.
Weight, breathable fabric, looks good
Hood is large and it obstructs the vision.
I bought this product after enquiring a lot in decathlon store since I am a regular trekker across western ghats. But i was disappointed by quality of product since i bought this product with intention of protecting myself from rain. I trekked in one of the peak in karnataka called mullayanagiri all along in drizzling rain with a belief of jacket being water proof. But i was surprised to see that water enters through side zip. I bought this jacket for my hampta pass trek this month,but i don't think this will protect me from rains in himachal. Really disappointed by this product

Bought for my 13 year old son - it's ok but a bit heavy and a dense black with no reflective stripes so not good for winter walks home from school
Good, lightweight waterproof for walking/hiking and everyday use. The sizing is on the small size so I'd advise taking a size larger than your usual especially if pairing with a fleece or jumper
Sizing. UK Large is closer to Medium
