Great shell for windy days/light drizzle but not waterproof!

Looks great. Fits well and very light and comfortable. Functionally speaking, works well for keeping out wind and light drizzle. Adds surprising amount of warmth given how thin the material is. Has lasted well (2 years frequent use and still going strong).
Not waterproof. In anything more than a light drizzle, water quickly soaks through this jacket. Slightly annoying as I didn't feel this was made clear on the info about it when I bought it -i was specifically looking for a waterproof, lightweight jacket. However, given how many windy/drizzly days we have in this country, I've still got good use out of it! On the pricy side.

windproof, breathable, lightweight

Got mine in TK Maxx for under £30 in bright blue
Perfect - most of my tshirts are short sleeved and I was fed up of having blue arms!
Keeps the wind out, warms up brilliantly too and the mesh bits under the arms keep the air flow going.
Got too hot, whipped it off, tied round the waist and barely knew I was wearing it. Good deep pockets too, store my Buff, gloves, work pass and other stuff in there no problem. It also folds down to nearly zilch in my kit bag.
I got a large and that fits - just! I'm a size 16 with a large (ish) boob region but it does still zip up. Definitely an incentive to lose more weight though. Possibly due to it being a Japanese make, Japanese women tend to be smaller framed?
I'd been looking for this kind of shell for ages and finally found it. It is an essential piece of kit - even on seemingly sunny days I take it out - I hate being cold when I'm out.

Brilliant price - but then I did get it at TK Maxx :-) - wouldn't pay top whack for it though.
