Gear Review

Great all-around winner

This is my second DriClime jacket, for I purchased the original version in 2002 after seeing that it won an Outside Gear of the Year award, and it has lived up to its billing. My first jacket has traveled with me everywhere, including a week long hike of the Haute Route. It is great for about 35 degrees and up (if reasonable active). The new features of hand pockets and adjustment pulls are great, even if they add a few ounces. I would highly recommend this as a durable fleece substitute (with the benefit of water repellency).
