Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT jacket! I had been looking for something of this type of versatility, thinking I’d surely have to compromise something. I saw the jacket during the sale, and was so impressed by the length, materials, and features. I ordered the XL based on size chart, but it’s already slightly oversized so the dark colored one is a bit big on me! Not a big deal, as it clearly shows an oversized look in the photos. It will be fine for layering during a chilly rain in Minnesota! A further reduction made the lighter color even more appealing price-wise, so I got that in a L for late summer or early fall. Absolutely love it! The detailing, wool, pockets (!!!) back length are superb. Very happy with both purchases! I am 5’8, very fit and curvy 182 lbs : ) The Large was really a better fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Travel and multiple uses Parka is light weight with great drape and comfort. Nicer than I imagined. Easy to throw in a day or travel bag. Versatile as a sweater, a light jacket and light rain coat. This versatility is what I love about all the icebreaker items . Paired with my other icebreaker long full zip sweater it makes a nice warm combo. The inside feels warm and soft and the outside is a subtle water repellant smooth texture which is nice as it does not pick up pet hair. I bought it on sale - at full price it is a tad dear...but would consider another in a dark color at some point.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from NOT A RAIN JACKET First the pros: great fit, stylish, lightweight, well-fitting if you size down. (I’m 5’4, 128lbs, normally Sml to Med. XS was right for this jacket.) Four large & roomy pockets. The cons: NOT WATERPROOF IN THE LEAST. It would be optimistic to say “water-resistant.” I thought a moderately rainy 30min walk would be a great test. After 5min my head, shoulders and arms were soaked and I turned back before I was waterlogged. Huge bummer because I love icebreaker and wanted to love this. Plus, even though I got on sale (thank goodness), I could’ve gotten 2-3 nice waterPROOF jackets for the price I paid. What do I do with this? It’s too long for a casual jacket, too light for a coat and doesn’t protect from wet at all. Guess it’s a fashion piece and nothing more. Not what I expect from a great function-driven brand like icebreaker. Really a bummer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect spring jacket As soon as I put this on, I loved it. Wonderful drape and super stylish. Love waist adjustment and sleeve adjustment at the wrist with 2 buttons. My husband also commented on its classic look. So glad I got this jacket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bringing style to any environemmt It’s a fun, classic jacket offering quality detailing and thoughtful design. Another IB product to love and to wear into warmer weather or on the go. What more could you ask for?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice It is a bit tent like, but I look forward to wearing it on colder fall or spring days with warm sweaters underneath. Note I haven't worn it yet. I am 5ft 6in and 130 pounds and I found it quite roomy. Ability to make cuffs tighter and zip up to cover neck was a nice touch

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool street style [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’m petite, 5’1, so this was similar to a trench coat on me. At the time I bought it, there was rain every week, and I thought it looked best paired with a pair of sleek leather boots. Since I bought it on sale, I think it was worth the price, but I would ever have purchased it at full price. Definitely a rain jacket for light tp moderate rains, not for downpours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic with an urban vibe... My GO TO jacket for Fall/Spring rainy days; I live at 9,000 ft above sea level and I can layer for lightweight trips; love British Khaki (I've missed this color); Great w/jeans, boots and a sweater...
