This is an awesome product. My friend and I just completed our thru-hike of the Colorado Trail on July 31. We had 12 days of rain out of 33 days on the trail. With the Elite Cagoule we never got wet, even for extended periods of time hiking in the rain over multiple days (7 straight days of rain between North Pass and Silverton). This jacket is easy to put on (and take off) and protected us from wind, rain, sleet and hail. I also used it on cold mornings to take the chill off. The length in back also provided protection when sitting on wet logs or rocks during breaks from hiking. The flap in front provides great accessibility to pant pockets as well as breathability. You can decide whether or not to use the snaps on the flap in order to let more air in from the sides. The hood is light enough that I was able to wear it underneath my trekking hat, which is a wide-brimmed outback type hat. That was an unexpected bonus. All in all, I was very happy to have this as part of my rain gear and consider it to be one of the success factors for our thru-hike. I also used the chaps and have written a review for them as well.
