Great Shell

I have the older version of the Foray that is gore tex paclite. I love this shell. $90 on SaC for a sub 1 lb. gore tex shell is tough to beat. I am 6' 175 lbs. with broad shoulders and I got the Large. It is baggy for sure, but I live in Denver so I use it in the winter a lot and it allows lots of room for layering. I wear a Patagonia down sweater under it and I still have baggy armpits. Looks like they made the hood bigger this year to accommodate helmets, but I wouldn't choose this thin shell for activities that require helmets as you are likely going to rip the lightweight material. I have been very careful with it since it is a thin material, but so far- no issues. Love the poncho style vents for backpacking in the summer. If I could afford it, I would spend more for a more breathable shell for backpacking, but I am very satisfied with the year round performance of this bargain gore tex shell.
