OMM Kamleika Race Smock II Jacket Review

I've spent ages looking for a decent waterproof and breathable jacket to run in and eventually bought the OMM Kamleika Race Smock II.  I received it yesterday and so far it's everything it promised to be.

The best thing is that it's stretchy and waterproof and breathable. For me the other two best bits are thumb holes and a breast pocket for my phone.

I noticed, when researching that there weren't many close up pictures so here's some for you.

The hood fits nicely. You can still look sideways because it's cut back. It's adjustable around the back too. The little peak is cool too, it'll keep some rain out of the eyes.

 Good quality zips and the all important phone holder is watertight.

The draw cords can be pulled tight with one hand, with a bit of practice. It takes me two hands to loosen the cords. 

The peak of the hat. 

This last picture is the toggle on the back of the hood. It's handy to stop the hood from coming too far down on your face.

This is what the official OMM people say about the jacket:
