Big Bang for the Bucks
Awesome jacket!! Love the fit which is "athletic" through the arms and chest. If you consider yourself burly, barrel chested, rotund, or just F'n BIG ... the Foray is definitely not cut for you. I'm 6'1", 188 with broad shoulders. I wear a 42R in a sport coat and the large fit me pretty well leaving just enough room for a couple of close fitting layers. The jacket is well ventilated with the pit zips going to the hem. It's Gore Pac Light so it breaths pretty well and packs down and inside of it's own pocket. Pockets are placed high enough to clear a harness or hip belt. Clearly it's not as durable as Gore Tex Pro Shell but unless you're rolling around in the scree, it should serve most people well. I'm new to OR after buying a bunch of MH. I saw this on sale and bought it but I would be happy to own it at full price too.
Update ... did a 12.5 mile loop on the AT on Good Friday. Temps were mid 60's and rainy. Moving hard and fast, I built up a lot of condensation inside this jacket. Thankfully the pit zips run to the hem and you can open this up but Gore Pac Light is not the most breathable so you have to manage this otherwise you'll end up soaked anyway ... from sweat not rain. I rolled the sleeves up and opened the zips all the way and it worked fine but if it's above 70 degrees and you're moving fast ... plan on being wet one way or the other.
