This jacket is as great as the description makes it out to be. The only downside to the jacket is it doesn't have pockets around the waste. On those windy rainy days, I always feel like putting my hands in some pockets near the waste and they aren't there. Other than that, the jacket is awesome. I have not experimented with adding wax for extra protection but the jacket is pretty good in the rain. The water beads up on the jacket and rolls right off.

In true Swedish form this jacket is simplistically styled but offers maximum function. It performs perfectly in the outdoors as a wind and water repellent jacket, breathing and bending where it should and also lends rugged sophistication to any dressy casual event around town. It gets lots of compliments and is surprisingly a conversation starter. The fit is awesome and trim. I am totally happy with this jacket and brand.

I had been looking for a fashionable spring/summer rain jacket for some time and read about this Swedish brand on Esquire. The jacket is outstanding but definitely runs a size large (I'm typically a medium and the small fits perfectly). They aren't kidding when they advertise the G1000 fabric as rugged. This is a durable jacket and is very well made. The best part? You can alter the weather-proofing and breathability. You can coat this jacket with their own branded wax then use a heat gun to absorb it into the fabric (you can purchase the wax for $10 or so online or in stores). Applying more wax makes the jacket more water repellant, while washing the jacket in the laundry and air-drying it will rinse the wax away and make the coat more breathable. Very high quality coat to battle the elements, but I wouldn't spend this kind of money for something to hike in.
