A combination of breathability and weather resistance makes this soft shell a reliable partner in a range of conditions. The fleece interior provides warmth when the sun goes down and headlamps come out. Take it into the backcountry with confidence that you will never need or want to carry it in your pack.

Very good feel to the jacket. Haven't worn it in the rain yet but blocks wind very well. Runs a little big though. I usually wear an XL in other soft shells but I had to send this one back and get a Large. Return was fast and easy. Hope this is helpful.
Durable, great fit (especially for tall people), excellent price

Overall, I'm extremely pleased with this jacket. The fit for people who are taller or have a longer torso is excellent. I have normally found it hard to find jackets that don't expose my midsection when I raise my arms overhead (i.e. placing gear or ice tools). So this jacket has been a treat in that regard. So far in a few outings rock climbing it has held up well. It seems to be quite durable and abrasion resistant. It's warm, wind-resistant and has held up well in heavy rain--water still beads on the surface of the jacket. Not sure how that will hold up after several washings. The only thing i really don't like about this jacket is the mesh-lined hand pockets, i find these aren't as durable as a fleece-lined pocket. Also, it would be nice if the hand pockets were slightly higher on the jacket as they are partially blocked by a climbing harness.
