Great Climbing Jacket

I recently used my Axiom on an big wall ice climbing expedition in Alaska. It's a lighter weight minimalist jacket that has good stretch to it for also being waterproof. The hood is fairly large so it's best to be wearing a helmet with it, but there's a drawcord adjustment for that. Seems as though the sizing on this one is slightly large in comparison to OR's line. I think it's a good choice for ice climbing and alpine rock climbing. It's light enough to take on a long rock climb to protect potential incoming weather. I would give it 5 stars if it had pit zips, but that's just my personal preference as I like those.
