        not suitable for heavy or extended use

        Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Thunderhead Jacket:

        I bought one of these jackets 2 years ago and while it did pretty well for a while (it's compact, lightweight, and fits well), it's now not suitable for anything but running around town in a light rain. The lining started peeling within the first few months of use, and after 1.5 years the zipper broke. I still plan to keep it and get some use out of it, but I wouldn't take it on a day hike or backpacking trip. Next time I'll fork up the extra 100 bucks and get something more substantial and with a better warranty (EMS cannot replace waterproof zippers).

        A little plastic-y

        Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Thunderhead Jacket:

        I was looking for a replacement for my decade-old Marmot Precip. I typically love EMS products--and my pre-Marmot jacket was an EMS product. But I had to return this one. I liked the features of this jacket (breathable, waterproof, zip-pits, taped seams), but the material has a plastic-y feel that just wasn't comfortable and made a (really obvious) swishing noise when walking. I'm continuing my search.

          This jacket fits well and does it's job. I've only tested it once so far in a moderate rain storm and stayed very dry. It fits well and looks good too.

          Waterproof lining peeling off!

                I have several rain jackets and I wear them interchangeably in rainy weather and also as layering shells over fleece in wet wintry weather. I bought this jacket because I loved the color and the fit and the features. Wore it maybe 10 times before the white waterproof lining inside the jacket started peeling off. If I put it on, I get white flecks all over my clothing. Clearly a defective/substandard product. I have Marmot jackets I bought 7 years ago that are still going strong. So this is clearly about the design/quality of this jacket. I'm very disappointed, because I love the color. And, I agree with the reviewer who said it is noisy - it is. Much more so than the Marmot, which is a softer material.

                  Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Thunderhead Jacket:

                  I really like these jackets, they're light, comfy, good fit, good price, but after burning through 2 of them in less than 4 years I had to give up on them. They just wear out way too fast and easily. The first one the waterproof lining started peeling off in big chunks after about a year and a half. I got another one and it still looked fine after two years but it started leaking really badly at the back of the neck and on one arm...on a cold rainy backpacking trip in the Alaskan backcountry in september. After that I gave up and bought a jacket that cost twice as much and have been much happier. I think this jacket would probably be fine as an emergency layer to carry on day hikes or if you just wear it casually, but it definitely can't stand up to heavy backcountry use.
