Zip-Front Glossy Jacket
I have this jacket in the blue. It is the cutest, best fitting lightweight jacket I have had in a long time. The design is outstanding. Jacket is quality made and will do very well not only in rainy weather but in cool temps. Sorry, I don't agree with previous review that it is plastic in feel ... it has a nice body to it and substantial. If you are wanting a flimsy windbreaker style, this is not it, a true rain jacket that is FABULOUS! Love it. Great purchase.

this is a true raincoat
This coat is almost plasticized on the outside-- the description calls it glossy, but it's more like a waxy raincoat type of fabrication. The whole thing is polyester, inside and out, and the waxy moisture-impervious outside layer makes it look like it'd be a sauna to wear. The styling is nice-- silver snaps, silver buckle-type decorations at the sleeve and near the waist-- that was all nicely done. And finally the color, which photographed as a marine blue and shows that way on the website, is in actuality a true navy blue, much darker than the photo, so beware of that if the color matters. I'm sending mine back because I didn't want such an obvious raincoat, but if you do, this might be the ticket for you.
