Finally a perfect jacket
I love this jacket. I don't require a hood that fits over a helmet, but I do want a jacket that breathes well, will keep me dry no matter what, and is durable. This jacket finally fits that description. I'm 5'8", 150 lbs, and the small fits quite well.
The shell is super tough, and although I haven't abused it much, I have no doubt that it can take anything that I throw at it. The fit is a little more boxy, but it works well for layering, much better than the Drystein.
Breathability is PHENOMENAL. I've owned Gore-Tex, Pertex and eVent products, and this is better than anything I've ever used. Waterproofing is also as good as or better than any of those.
The only slight issues I have are the sleeve length is at the very edge of being too short, and the pockets aren't in the best position. They tried to put the pockets high enough that they wouldn't be blocked by a hip-belt, but they're still about 1/3 covered. No too big of a deal since they have a napoleon pocket, but just a minor concern.
