FAO of females....do any of you wear male waterproof jackets or is the cut totally wrong????

In reply to An Triubhas: that would depend on the shape of the missus whether a male jacket would fit but in general a women's jacket would fit much better

In reply to An Triubhas:

Slim doesn't "narrow" it down much! If she is relatively broad shouldered and small breasted, it will be fine. Narrow shoulders and ribcage but sizeable breasts, asking for trouble. Hip vs waist size is also a difference in women although less likely to be a big deal in a regular length jacket.

In reply to An Triubhas: if she is slim womens is going to be her best bet unless she is aiming for a tent fit. Some mens jackets may fit like the top end technical shells from mountain hardwear and patagonia but womens is nearly always going to be a better bet.
