The pros: *Definitely does what it's designed to do. *Waterproof and windproof. (I wore it in a light to medium rain, in 39-46 degree weather, stayed dry and warm). *Storm flap covers zipper (important). *Has long pit vent zippers, (has 2 zippers per each vent!) a must have for internal temp. control. *Very generous adjustable hood. *Easily adjustable cuffs. *Superb jet black outer color. *Very light. *Bag attached to inner side pocket. Cons: (for me) *Prefer inner color to be black, don't like the look of wearing a white plastic 'refuse' bag. I prefer also not to be too noticeable, would be much better if inner were black. *Only he chest pocket is connected on the inside by 4 thin 'attachments' eventually may be an issue. All other pockets no problems. Overall an excellent buy, especially on "Black Friday". Just wish the inside was black.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, very light & folds small., small connected pocket bag can hold my gloves., Cons: white color on inside., 4 thin inner chest pocket connections.

I use my jacket for biking in the rain - it can be folded/rolled and stored in my bag. It keeps me dry, but it truly is a shell - it won't keep you warm without insulating layer. The seams are taped nicely. Overall, it's a very nice jacket.Pros: Build quality, Ease of use, Performance
The NEW "HP" model not great :(
February 07, 2013
I had the original Sierra Designs Men's Hurricane Jacket 40669, loved it, fit and performed perfectly (purchased on Altrec). Unfortunately after a first wash some inner white backing peeled off from the outer shell. I sent it to Sierra Designs cust. serv. Warranty and they cheerfully quickly replaced it... but what they sent to me is the newer Men's Hurricane Jacket "HP" model. The "HP" size Med. is too small & tight (orig. Med. was perfect) plus, the overall feel is not the same and design of the cordage on the "HP" model is a completely different design than the 40669 model and rather flimsy. I just contacted Sierra Designs, they are shipping me a Men's Hurricane Jacket 40669, no questions asked.... SUPERB customer service, they definitely back their products! I recommend the Men's Hurricane Jacket "40669" model but not the "HP" model.Cons: Bad design
More Comfortable than Most Rain Jackets

I really like this jacket because it has a nice insulating liner rather than just a pure shell. This makes it fairly warm in addition to being waterproof and windproof and the ventilation is an awesome feature for letting some heat out preventing sweating. I'm 6'1" and 185 and the XL is perfect for my longer arms - great movement.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
Ease of ordering
October 16, 2012
I bought this jacket as a gift to match pants my husband bought. The quality seems good. The best part is the ease of finding and ordering this product! I do a lot of online shopping and this is the first time I have ordered from Altrec. It was very simple and easy and the 100% guarantee makes it a no brainer! Great find!!!

I have actually only used it once but it was in the rain and I stayed dry and it did not feel bulky. My wife also got one because it was a good value.

bought this for my husband. looks great. preforms great. do wish it was a little longer.
Good Looking Coat
November 11, 2010
This coat provides excellent rain protection with a good fit and style. Ample zippered vents under the arms allow for ventilation when things get hot or humid. They can be awkward to open and close while you are wearing it. Drawstrings and a tethered jacket storage pouch make it convenient to keep stowed in a backpack or urban bag.Pros: Performance

I like the way the seams are all reinforced on the inside. It is a well made jacket and the hood is big enough to fit easily over a hard hat. I have a 49" chest and am over 6', I ordered the 2xx and it just barely fit over an insulated flannel shirt. It is also shorter than I expected, comes to about 3 inches below the belt line. So order an extra size bigger and make sure you get pants or you'll have a wet rear end.

I wish the hood rolled up to be stored in a zipper pocket. Otherwise this is good for the opening day of MLB in the Northeast. The construction is solid. The seams are covered. The length is a little short but that does not bother me. I would buy this again. As for durability I will have to let you know.Pros: Build quality, Great value

Some nice new changes however it says that it comes with a stuff sack and ours did not have one.

This jacket did exactly what I needed it to. It keep my dry and comfortable. The ventilation zippers work well to keep air moving thru the jacket without letting in water. The Price from Altrec helped as well. =)Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
