best jacket ever
I wore this jacket hiking in the rain riding mountain bikes and skiing in the snow and it was exeptional in all areas, it packed down small and the hood works well and keeps heat in and cold out side and breathes well. it has heaps of pockets for all you stuff like phones and ski passes and the only thing i would change would be not get the yellow one.

does the Macpac Traverse Pertex®Rain Jacket - Men's come with an underarm zip for when we want some ventilation?
BEST ANSWER: no but it breaths fine without it
Why make a waterproof jacket without waterproof zips - I bought this and have only just seen the note on the zips - how nice n-waterproof are they?
BEST ANSWER: We have been travelling with these jackets for five weeks in conditions ranging from drizzle to rain. We have had no water ingress in that time or any other problems. They are lightweight provide some warmth (esp wind protection ). We are very happy with them. Note I cannot comment on performance in torrential rain at this stage.
I'm right on the edge between small and medium measurements, would you recommend sizing up or down?
