Breathes decentely, looks good, seems well made, waterproofing is good. Only downside is the cuffs, the cuffs have a material at the end which keeps cold air out, this is a great idea, but it needs to be a bit more snug - its too loose. The cuffs need a velcro strap too, the arms are a bit too long. Add a velcro strap and I would give this a 4 or 5 stars. Great jacket for the price.
