Great fit and great qualityOverall, a big thumbs up! Living in the UK, where it’s known to rain a fair bit (!), I’ve had plenty of opportunities to test out the Aysen Women’s GORE-TEX Jacket when hiking in the hills plus commuting by bike.
Pros: Being a good quality lightweight gore-text, the jacket has kept me dry from the elements every time, without feeling bulky/restrictive to wear. Both the arm length and body length are a bit longer than other jackets and there isn’t a big difference between the length of the front and back which I really like.
Cons: The only thing I wasn’t a huge fan of are the positioning of the pockets, as they’re vertical zips on the chest rather than traditional waist pockets. I found the pockets on the chest a bit awkward to access at times, and not hugely flattering for females.

Ticks the boxesWas looking for a goretex jacket that would include some specific features, this one seemed a great choice of price/performance when on special. Light goretex jacket with pit vents and a couple of great details. Fits well, very comfortable.
