    Looks and sounds nice from your description. Is it waterproof/water resistant?

    Just bought it only clearance for $99 🙂
    It was marked on the bagging about ~Feb 2012 so it’s about 2 1/2 years old and sitting in storage in a store!
    Nice timing to get it as autumn approaches soon.

    Wish it had some sort of draw/cinch cord for the hood but it’s acceptable the way it is. The thumb loops are weird but it looks like it’ll keep the warmth in around the wrists and arms esp. during snowy/windy conditions.

    It’s relatively lightweight and seems warm but haven’t used it yet until the weather begins to get cooler within the next few weeks when the jacket will come in handy.

    The fit is normal, not athletic fit or snug fit as other reviewers on various online sites have commented. I have the XL and I’m 6′ and 210+ but in good shape and I still have enough room for a midweight fleece jacket underneath. This jacket is suppose to be an insulating layer but probably can be worn (almost) like a lone jacket
    when the temperature is cool ~50s-60s.

    The red color is acceptable and looks almost like the picture online.
    The hood is relatively roomy with enough room for a wool/fleece cap.
    It’s not noted on Sierra Designs website that the shell is DWR, water resistant treatment, so let’s presume that it’s probably resistant to light snow and sprinkles but nothing more or else it’ll get soaked in wet weather.

    As an insulating layer, I can throw my waterproof hard shell jacket on top and should keep me relatively warm when the temperature drops below 30 F. The jacket’s shell doesn’t seem that durable so I’ll keep it away from branches or anything else that may snag it to prevent rips in the nylon fabric.
