Rain Defender®

Rain Defender®, Durable water repellent—water beads up and rolls off.

Rain Defender® durable water repellent garments are just as functional and comfortable while fishing, hunting, working, or standing on the sidelines at a football game in a sudden November rain. Water will bead up and roll off your sweatshirt, jacket, overalls, pants, and more, so a little rain won’t stop you from finishing the job without changing your gear.

So far, so good
I work 14 hour shifts at night and in the early hours, things frequently become slow and I open the door so I can hear the phones and radios, stand on the balcony and watch the world go by. Those hours of the morning get cool. Too warm for a coat and jackets don't have hoods. This hoodie has filled my needs wonderfully. It's light weight and warmth combined make it ideal for my purposes. I haven't warn it in the rain or had it long enough to comment on it's durability. Time will tell.
So far, I would highly recommend this for anyone that needs a light weight, comfortable jacket.

Great all around sweatshirt
I was impressed with the quality, and heavyduty weight of the sweatshirt. This can last a lifetime. I am a little disappointed though that the sweatshirt runs a little large. I am hoping after a few washes it will shrink a bit.

Do yourself a favor and research the fit!
I just returned it through the mail. I should have listened to my gut when I felt like I shouldn't order the XL... I needed the Large.

Looks great but I don't know about any functionality. I only tried it on.

Is this wind proof?
A shopper on Aug 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I wouldn't say windproof. But it's deffently one of my favorite sweatshirts. I live in New Jersey and all winter long I wore this and all I had was a thermal and this and I was fine for most of the winter season. And I do construction. So hope this helped out.
Is this wind proof ?
A shopper on Aug 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I can't say it's wind "proof" b/c I haven't worn it in a hurricane- but I have worn it on the ocean in freezing 40mph winds and never felt a thing penetrate the liner. So from my experience I would say yes- but it all depends on your definition of wind-proof. I personally love it!
