            I used this coat on an early spring trip with chilly, blustery wind and rain - i was comfortable the entire time!

            No so great - where my backpack strap rubbed, rain water seemed to leak through (at least the surface coating)! - is this normal?

            Great Jacket

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

            I haven't had a chance to use this jacket hiking yet, but I'm looking forward to it. So far the jacket has done the trick while commuting in freezing, wet, windy Boston weather. It's super lightweight, seaming is really well done and, for a shell, it's relatively breathable. Good in the winter over my fleece, and will be a nice transition jacket for New England spring and fall.

                  I bought two as Christmas presents for my daughters. They really love them. My oldest daughter actually thanked me for the jacket about a week ago after she got caught in the rain. Usually her father can never do anything right. My youngest daughter left her jacket over a kitchen chair and when I took it to her room and threw it on the floor with the rest of her clothes, she protested, grabbing the jacket and hanging it in her closet. You can't do better than that!

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

                    This jacket arrived quickly, and just in time for a rain-storm. Water rolled right off and wind right by the jacket, my face was well protected by the adjustable visor, and there was room to put my layers underneath.

                    I am 5'5", 125lbs, ordered the size S.

                    DOWNSIDE: The sleeves were very long and bulky, and the velcro to tighten around the wrists very stiff. I do not have short arms and own many other EMS jackets/sweaters - not sure why this didn't fit perfectly.

                    I will be keeping it as a delicious hard shell to keep me from the elements year round.

                      Love this jacket. Been a long time since I have had a decent rain/wind proof jacket. I ordered the medium but had to send it back for the small. The fit is great and you can still wear a fleece underneath for when the weather gets colder. It comfortable and really protects from the elements. My only wish is that it packed into the hood so if I took it off when hiking I could clip it to my backpack etc. But all in all..a great find!

                      I wore this jacket for the first time in late September during a 6-hour hike in Spain. Combined with a couple of moisture-wicking and thermal layers, the jacket kept me both warm and dry. It's a great fit and lightweight, making it easy to move around in and ideal for hiking and other outdoor activities. Also great as an everyday rain jacket. The waterproof zippers, underarm vents, and hoodie visor are other pros.

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

                      The best thing about this jacket, for me,is the fabric, both the inner and the outer, since it's not the usual slimy, uncomfortable, unwearable rain jacket fabric. This is one of the only raincoats I own that I would be happy to wear even when it isn't raining.
                      However, I haven't worn it in heavy rain, or even strong wind, yet, so can't comment on whether it's water or wind proof.
                      It seems to be cut to an average shape, not too form-fitting, nor too large. It seems to have a feminine cut, meaning not too narrow through the hips nor wide in the shoulders as some outdoor clothing can be. I am a pretty basic size 10, I think, but went with a Large since I want to be able to wear layers under it if I need to, and it isn't too baggy at all. If I was in a store, I might have gone with a medium, but I purchased it online. I like the nice bright blue color, too.

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

                      I bought this jacket to replace my ski shell that I lost. I have not had a chance to use it as a ski shell, but it has worked well as a raincoat. I expect to use it for hiking this summer as well. The fit is a little off. I bought the small because the extra small was a little tight in the hips, although it fit well everywhere else ( I wanted to be able to layer). The small, while roomier, seems to have longer than normal sleeves. Fortunately, I can cinch the Velcro to keep them up a little. In general, I think this jacket is superior to the shell I was replacing.
