      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:

        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.

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

            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

                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.

                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.
