    1. Great looking!

      Haven’t worn this in the rain yet, but did try it on and it seems plenty roomy and comfortable. Can’t wait for an opportunity to use it! on May 19th 2018

    2. yes, but

      Love the idea. love the length. love the snaps. love the air flow and access to pockets under the cagoule. But but but--I'm small and ordered a medium because of reviews indicating the cagoule runs small and the upper, most fitted part of the piece is pretty snug around the chest w/ a cotton turtleneck and lightweight fleece pullover. Not quite too snug to be uncomfortable, but this is california and it is pretty warm. I'm afraid a large would be too much for me, so will keep it, but I have other raingear as well, so am not relying on this piece alone. Seems Sierra Design could be a bit more accurate in sizing and more generous given this is outerwear and assuming users will be wearing layers underneath. on Mar 22nd 2017

    3. Sizes way too small!

      I have to return and exchange for a large because this garment is way undersized.
      I do not understand because I got the chaps in medium and they are quite roomy but the cagoule in medium is ridiculous, it fits more like a straight jacket than a rain garment designed to be worn with layers and a pack.

      Anyway, that said, the design of the cagoule is superb.
      BTW... did you know that in French., the word "cagoule" means balaclava? LOL...

      So, this is plenty long too work with the chaps exactly as Sierra Designs intended. There is a mesh tunnel pocket on the front.
      No zippers, it's all snaps.

      I would have loved to try it today in the rain but the size is so ridiculous it's insulting. SD, please. Spruce up your sizing, this is absurd.
      Im leaving town next week I really don't have the time to play the return and exchange game.
