        My husband and I both have two of these jackets each. They are perfect for hiking, walking the dog and even snowshoeing. They protect from wind and keep you dry when it is raining. They are a good value.

        Great, but no chest pocket

        By Tess

        from New Hampshire

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

        Just what is expected from a waterproof shell. My husband uses it for skiing, over his sweater and rainy days. His much older version of this EMS shell had an inside chest pocket. That would have made it PERFECT

        This red jacket replaced a similar blue one I bought 14 years ago. Exactly the same. The fit and feel are great. I feel and look great. I hope to replace it with a blue one 14 years from now.

        I'm very happy with this product so far. I like the fact that it is light and flexible, although a less than fit buyer might want to order a size larger than usual. I'm looking forward to having this jacket to use next season.

        • Windy days

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

        This jacket is exactly what I need for wet days during summer or in the tropical areas. It comes with useful pit zip and many ways to adjust. I am 5'9" and 150lb; M fits me well with rooms to layer. It truly provides a lot of value for the money. Taking 1 star for the noisy fabric.

          • Pit zips

          Cons

          Best Uses

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

            Have not used this jacket in the field yet. Worn to work and around town. seems Ok so far. Would like a fuller cut. Seems smaller than the other 2xl jackets I have. A 2-way zipper would be nice. Being able to open from the bottom to reach into pants pockets is helpful. Picked the blue color to stand out in woods better.

            from New Hampshire

            Pros

            • Hood Not Too Big Small
            • Pit zips

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

              I have been searching for years for a jacket that fit me right. I tried every brand from every company. I am average height with an athletic build. Most jackets are either too short or too long. The same with the sleeves. This jacket is perfect. I have had it about two weeks and went for a hike in the rain. It held up perfectly..open the pit zip and cooled off soon as it got hot.
