I really wanted a waterproof jacket and this seemed to fit the bill been 'guaranteed waterproof'. Sadly, it is not waterproof. My Holden jacket (15,000waterproofing) is more waterproof than this Burton jacket. Besides that unfortunate flaw, the fit is lovely, the color (red) is great and it's a pretty classic style.The PowGrip design is great, but makes the jacket a bit snug across the shoulders. If it was waterproof, I'd give 5 stars.
