Correction on my review.
Bought this as my wife needs a new waterproof shell. There are so many different types out there, but this one was a nice design. Also learning that it's also zip-in compatible was a huge plus. All the jackets and vests (north face) zips in! I posted earlier that it didn't. I tried again, and it zips in perfectly. So for those who are looking for a good shell, try the Varius Guide.
