I just received this jacket last week. It's just what I was looking for. Something that was fitted nicely around the waist (I like the option for the internal drawstrings if needed) and the storage pockets in the front. I will be using this jacket for travel in Europe and liked having options to put things.
I haven't worn it yet in a rainstorm, but knowing Kuhl's reputation for great products, I'm sure I will be more than pleased.
My only comment is that I would have preferred to have one secured zippered pocket on the interior of the jacket as well. Yes, you can get to a tiny mesh pocket through the arm hole on one side, but that's not extremely convenient and not exactly secure if you are moving around or taking off your jacket. An additional zippered internal pocket would have made this jacket absolutely perfect.
