I looked around, read reviews, and really feel this is the best rain jacket available for women cyclists. It is long enough everywhere, and it keeps the rain and wind out. The hood is nice because you can wear it under your helmet. I bought the red jacket, and it is true red. They give you a nice large pocket in the back and a media pocket at the chest, but no front hand pockets. I really think they could have added two zippered hand pockets for the price.
I bought the red jacket because when you ride on the road, you really need to be seen. I was disappointed in the color though, because it is orange/red and not true red. It has tiny reflective markings which I like. The more reflection the better.
I was worried I would not be warm enough, but the coat is truely warm. With this and some crazy warm ski gloves and a face mask, I can ride on a cold Colorado day - no problem. The neck does not go very far up, but if I unzip it and I am sitting say inside somewhere, the zipper sticks me under the chin - kind of anoying...but comfortable otherwise.
Unlike the Gore rain coat I have, this has front hand pockets with zippers. There is a back pocket with a zipper, and inside that is a smaller safe pocket for credit cards etc that has velcro. Pockets are nicely placed and large enough. I think they could have put in one more chest pocket for a cell phone too.
Fitting seems ok, but I think they could have tapered it more. Good thing it is long in back, cause it tends to ride up when I am not riding. I wear a large because I am big busted, but I would normally wear a medium coat size. I wear a tshirt and a thermal shirt underneath just to make sure I don't get cold.
