Scandia Woods Storm Jacket
water resistant is not waterproof. I wanted a lined more substantial jacket for rainy days in Fall in MN. Basically a summer windbreaker.

Beautiful lightweight jacket
I bought this jacket for an upcoming trip to Alaska where I understand layering is important. We'll be up there at the end of the rainy season and wanted something nice - not a dollar store poncho. This jacket was reasonably priced. I chose the lilac one and the color is very pretty. It's a deep tone, not that light color you find around Easter for the kids' dresses. As for size, it fits nicely with or without my sweatshirt (that layering thing). It is not a rain slicker but a water resistant jacket so I'll see how it does. It is so stylish though that even if it doesn't hold up in a heavy rain (like we have here in Florida) it's still a great jacket for when the temps get cooler - 50-60s. Great for work, play or going shopping!

Nice, but very thin, windbreaker.
I like this jacket. Good quality, good fit. However, it is not a storm jacket. It is a very thin windbreaker. Also, color is very different from the blue depicted. More a muted French grey.

Better than I expected!
I was pleasantly surprised by the soft material, very comfortable.

VERY NICE MATERIAL
This jacket isn't quite what I expected. Material is very soft, not at all what I think of as water-resistant; I hope it lives up to it's rep.
Fits well, cut nicely with plenty of room to go over heavier top. The hood has a rather strange tab to make a visor or just as a hood, will have to experiment with that.
Overall, I would recommend this jacket for cool weather, light rain.

Can't see $49.00 in this jacket, it is very light.
I bought this for rain protection. Which it definitely is not. It also fit tight around the hips even though it is the correct size for me.

it was too too big, had to send it back.
This item runs so large from the size I usually buy, had to send it back.

I was disappointed in the color. By the picture & description of the color I expected it to be a deeper blue. It is more of a faded out shade then I was looking for. The color looks nothing like the picture.
