Is this exclusively a winter sport jacket or can it be useful for backpacking?
Its more designed for winter/cold weather use...but its not insulated and could work for backpacking as well. It'll be warmer and a touch heavier than a straight rain shell though. Hope this helps!
I feel like it would be much too heavy for backpacking. (I use a Patagonia Rain Shadow for backpacking.)
