            Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's WindBlast Lite Jacket:

            way too expensive for what you get. Lightweight which is great, but I could buy an inexpensive product with same detail and not pay so much. I returned it.

            Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's WindBlast Lite Jacket:

            EMS apparently is no longer offering this extremely cost effective, beautifully packable, lightweight wind shell. A real shame -- it's a winning product. I had to may more that twice as much for a slightly more than comparable Mountain Hardwear product.

            Well priced windbreaker

            Best Uses

            • For running

            Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's WindBlast Lite Jacket:

            This jacket is good as an outside windbreaker and for all seasons as long as you wear the appropriate layers underneath. I run year round at a bay and the wind can be pretty significant, so this jacket works well. As noted in the description, it is not water proof, so I do not expect to wear this in downpours, but only for a short period of time with mild rain. Since I bought this on sale, I think it's well priced and functions appropriately for the quality.

            Cons

            • A little too light

            Best Uses

            • Drizzly Weather

            Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's WindBlast Lite Jacket:

            I only use it for drizzly or potentially so days, not very cold. It's kind of an emergency poncho that I grab as I go out the door. It's well made, as all EMS stuff seems to be, but I haven't found the perfect environment to use it much in.
