General comments: I use the Calisto on the hill in summer and for everyday use all year round. The Aquafoil fabric offers excellent protection in heavy showers. The jacket has a rollaway hood and an elasticated drawcord at the hem. Overall the cut is quite flattering compared to many others I tried on. Elasticated and taped cuffs do a good job of keeping rain and wind out. Definitely recommended.

General comments: I have used the jacket for approximately 5 months now and can honestly say that it's the best budget waterproof jacket that I've come across. I was particularly interested in getting a jacket that included ripstop as I regularly walk my dogs and encounter trailing brambles. One previous jacket fell victim to tearing so ripstop was high on my priority list. The other feature that has impressed me is how waterproof the jacket is. I have literally been in torrential downpours and the jacket has kept me bone dry. The only downside is that drains off onto your trousers very quickly so wear waterproof trousers aswell if conditions are bad! The toggles are very handy for adjusting both the hood and hem for a comfy, sealed fit. At least the hood isn't oversized - I have had problems in the past of the hood being too large so that it restricts your vision. My only gripe is that external jacket pockets are a little fiddly when you're in a hurry or have your hands full. My jacket pockets have both a zip and additional velcro fastening. Some might see this as an advantage? Otherwise, it's a 100% endorsement and I would definitely bu another one in the future.
Pros: Ripstop fabric prevents the jacket being written off
It's utterly waterproof
Cons: Fiddly pockets
