      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.

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

        For those of you on the edge about this product, although I've seen more attractive jackets, you really cannot go wrong with this one. I would definitely suggest it to anyone I know looking to buy a rain jacket.
        Side Note: Amazingly fast shipping, as well as great promotions make ems.com the place to shop
        Also, I have the smoke gray (light bluish) and a friend has the darker blue, and the darker blue is by far a better color.

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

          I've owned a pair of the Series 3 pants for years and they never lost their DWR no matter how wet and for how long it was raining for... water just rolled right off. Amazing! I've had many different jackets over the years, Gore-Tex jackets from Marmot to REI and they all eventually lost there DWR coating. Even washed them with TX-Direct, that never last. Then I thought, why not get the Thunderhead Series 3 Jacket?

          I should have got that jacket years ago when I bought those pants.

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

            I have not been in severe weather yet, but from all indications, the jacket will be great. The things you look for are on this....water proofing, pit zips, seams are sealed and the hood can be cinched well. The other day I mentioned to my wife that I should have bought two coats, one for our camping/hiking activities and one for the everyday go to work use! Very good coat and very reasonable in cost.

            Sizing is a bit odd though...I am an XL but I had to buy the XXL in this coat.

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

            An excellent lightweight rain shield shell. Cut well, allowing for fluid movement without being baggy. The hood sits right, and is not bulky. The zippered arm vents are a nice touch. The pockets, however -- mesh? I would have preferred another material with a more durable feel. Overall, very pleased with this purchase.

                We needed to return this otherwise-lovely jacket because the men's large was a bit too short for the intended wearer. Would be GREAT if the Thunderhead jacket came in Tall sizes as well.

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

                    I was very disappointed in this jacket. Unlike Most EMS products this was poorly designed and made of inferior materials. For the price I expected more than what was just a light windbreaker. I returned this item immediately.

                    Great, but no chest pocket

                    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.
