I have used this anorak mainly for cold weather cycling so far and it has done a great job of cutting the wind and keeping me warm. I havent been in any type of precipitation yet, but Im sure it will at least keep me from getting soaked. In regards to the weight; well you cannot beat it. There is nothing lighter on the market to my knowledge. This jacket would be great for a number of activities including UL Backpacking. My only concern with the jacket is durability.The fabric is very lightweight which decreases durability therefore increasing the possibility of tears and simple snags to become a huge problem. I also find the zipper to be a bit sketchy since if it ever gets stuck on the fabric it might tear it. Overall, I would highly recommend this jacket if you are in the UL rain/wind protection department or just looking to get a very lightweight windbreaker for running, cycling (mainly because since Mtn Hardwear isnt a cycling or running brand this jacket is cheaper than a lot of those "pure" sport's brands)...
