If & when you find your proper size this is the best option for a cotton waterproof mid weight coat/jacket. More on the sizing to come.
Functionally, this is very well designed. Many accessible pockets, properly sized and located. Zippers and snaps where useful and necessary. The fit, once you find the right size, is perfect - snug in the body for warmth with a couple of layers and plenty of room in the shoulders for movement. A sports jacket fits well and the perfect length covers and protects it from the elements - i.e. the sports jacket doesn't stick out.
Now, sizing....Astonishingly, every marked large size I tried on was a different size! In one marked large, the body was too small for me to zipper, but the shoulders where too big; In another, the body and shoulders fit but the sleeves were 4 inches short! I had to try on 5 different coats marked large until I found one that actually fit!
The sales person, and I agree, said this is not unusual for garments made in China.
Would you recommend this product to a friend?
