bought this jacket for patagonia rock climbing and worked perfectly. it´s water resistant is pretty decent, not us much as the videos and description sugest, but you can just throw a light rain jacket and problem solved.
it blocks wind perfectly.
what i found great of the jacket is that it takes the sweat out of it perfectly leaving your back dry against the backpack.
the only downside of the jacket is that, like frap120021 said, it has kind of a tigth fit on the chest. but i found it ideal for climbing as it doesn´t get in the middle of getting the gear.
i got it really cheap, like 120 or something, dont know if i would buy it full price.
but it is one of the nicest softshells that i´ve had
hope i´m helpfull with my review
