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

          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!

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

          The jacket is a beautiful plum color. It fits nicely, not baggy at all. I got a small and I'm 5'6 at 117 pounds. It feels a little snug in the shoulder, but I was wearing a sweater when I tried it on. It's still winter, so I haven't had a chance to actually wear it outside. The material is a little stiff, as most rainjackets seem to be. There are plenty of pockets. Including the 2 zippered hand pockets, there are 2 long mesh pockets on each inner panel - they do not close, but they are deep so it's unlikely something will fall out. The hood is adjustable in the back, which is great so it doesn't flop over my face for when I don't have my hair up in a ponytail. Overall, a nice jacket I'm eager to use once the snow melts.

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

            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!
