          Comments about Eastern Mountain Sports EMS Women's Thunderhead Jacket, 2014:

          I have nerve issues in my hand where jackets hit and the material on this jacket is one of the few that I am able to wear. It's the perfect softness and provides a waterproof shell in the winter that I wear over a fleece and by itself in the warmer weather as NE has quite the seasonal change. I had an older model that I wore for about 15 years and loved it so much I bought the same model. I will say that there is a little less room in the new model and it pulls a little in the chest area if you are well endowd as I am when you have a fleece under. A really nice feature is the zipper which is easy to zip and strong. The jacket also packs up small so it's easy to take everywhere! Love it!

            I have an earlier model of the same jacket, and the sleeves weren't quite long enough. The new one fits perfectly. I travel a lot and hate to carry an umbrella. This jacket is the perfect solution. After many years and many washings, the older jacket lost its water repellency. This time I bought a black jacket so I won't have to wash it as often.

            I went to rain forest in Costa Rica and en-counted shower. This cloth kept me dry and warm. It exceeds my expectation. I love this jacket. It is a great purchase.

                  Bought this jacket for my sister after I'd purchased one for myself and loved it. When our jackets had taken a beating, I bought us both new jackets this year.

                        This is the second Thunderhead jacket I have owned. A great jacket for the money. I love the fit and comfort. The newer model has the option to vent the arms, which is great for more strenuous hikes or warmer days. And - EMS take note - I especially LOVE that the jacket comes in grays and blacks. I know it is hard to believe, but some women are completely sick of having to choose between fuchsia, teal blue, lapis and lavender!

                          I really liked this jacket because everytime I use it i'm dry! The hood is stiff and the pockets are great.
