Ideal for wet weather
This is definitely a jacket to be carried in a pocket as an 'in case it rains' scenario rather than as a waterproof jacket to be worn because it is raining. It will provide an extra windproof layer or protection against a short rainstorm or similar but I would not expect it to survive for long in sustained rain. I am also not too sure as to the level of breathability of the jacket but as it has been bought as an emergency jacket in case it rains during a ride with my child that is not too much of a negative. However the sizing is really odd, I bought it for a 9 year old and went up a size to the 12 due to warnings that the size comes up small. The body of the jacket fits a 9 year old perfectly but the sleeves are 8 inches too long, the size 10 would fit in the arms but would be too small in the body both in length and width. I would say that this would not be long enough in the back for a normal sized 12 year old once they were leaning forwards over the handle bars whilst riding. Based on the price and how small it packs down, fits in a cycling shirt pocket perfectly, I would recommend this jacket for use as an emergency jacket for a child.
I was looking for a reasonably priced ladies lightweight jacket (like the one available in the mens' section), but as there weren't any available I opted for the children's section. I am a size 8 and usually a childs age 14 would fit me, but this jacket is on the small size and has very tight arms making you feel almost as if you have been vacuum packed in! I would definitely recommend you go up one size. The jacket has a very plasticy feel to it, and together with the tightness on the arms, I really don't think it will be comfortable to wear it for anything more than a short ride. The colour is great and very bright, and you certainly will be seen in this jacket. So to sum it up if you are looking for a cheap hi viz jacket, can go up a size and don't mind the feeling of cheap plastic, you may be happy with this jacket.
