I bought this for my husband, who runs and walks outside to train for sports. He likes how it looks, which means that he actually wears it. I was concerned that it looked like one of those jackets that when it becomes wet, clings to the skin and starts to wick water through. So, we tested it by having him put it on and stick his arm under the kitchen faucet. We let the water run for a full minute, and found it was completely water resistant.
