Excellent staple, questionably durable

I absolutely loved this jacket for the 2 1/2 years that I owned it. I travelled to South America with it, ice climbed in it, rock climbed in it... you name it. It is not quite warm enough for cold AK days, but works well as a layer. The material did not stand up to the granite in Joshua Tree, but there is nothing that a patch can't fix. My only problem with the jacket is that the zipper failed before the material did. For a $250 jacket, I would expect a more durable zipper.
