Just picked one up last week in forge grey. Great fit. Plenty of space underneath to layer with a fleece or my puffy jacket. Waiting for some rains to try it out.

Patagonia site has XS

Yeah I have two of these. It's not water proof and the inside gets damp a bit when it's raining hard.

It does keep one warm during a windy day. Got me sweating if I don't open up the zipper to vent out.

Probably why it's on sale at 50% off.

I imagine most of these types of jackets are similar, really. I also have a pair of these and have a similar experience - maybe some dampness in the sleeves if it in the rain for a good while. But I don't have similar ones to compare it to, and no expense goretex/event (or whatever is the new hotness).

I am under the impression that the fabric of many raincoats is coated with plastic on the inside, making a crinkly sound. The plastic always seems to flake off eventually.

hopefully they come up with some better way

Maybe someday in the future, someone will invent a waterproof membrane.

My guess is it is pretty water-proof, but not as breathable as a true 3-layer GoreTex hardshell, so if you walk or hike in this when it is raining (i.e., when humidity is high) then you will sweat and get damp on the inside. Next time it's raining try running a mile in a trash bag - the bag will keep almost all the water out but you will still find that you're getting soaked.

If you absolutely need a piece where you can stay dry in the rain while active, then you'll have to pay-up for something like a Patagonia Triolet:

I personally own the Patagonia Refugitive but that's no longer sold.

I have this, and it is most certainly waterproof. Had to walk for 10 minutes in an absolutely torrential downpour. Got to my destination and jeans, shoes, socks were dripping wet, soaked through. Unzipped my jacket and my shirt was bone dry. It was one of the jacket's first real tests and I was very impressed.

Have an earlier version of this and it is waterproof but not terribly breathable. It's my go-to jacket for running and travel because it's extremely light weight. My version has no hip pockets - only a small pocket in located on the upper arm (good for a key, ID and a few bills - not for a phone or a proper wallet). It is a bit crinklely.
