Great...as long as you don't wear a pack

As good as it gets in shell technology. Super comfortable - never 'crinkly' no matter how cold. The minimal fleece lining makes the interior incredibly comfortable. It could do with some reinforcement or maybe a little different material in key parts though - I wear a small hydration pack and after half a dozen or so uses I've noticed areas around the chest and shoulders that have started to 'fuzz' due to the slight rubbing from the pack straps. I'm admittedly a little disappointed considering how much I shelled out for this thing. Hopefully it doesn't affect the jacket's performance down the road. Otherwise I'm completely happy.
