The best rain jacket I've ever owned.
I really mean it, the Leonidas is an incredible jacket. I've used probably thirty different water proof jackets and this is by far my favorite. The first thing you will notice is the softer touch of the jacket which doesn't feel like all the other crinkly water proof jackets you've ever used...it really is soft to the touch, but water still beads up and the high vent keeps you bone dry in a downpour. What really clinched the deal for me on this jacket though is the four-way stretch, which means that this jacket moves with you and feels like a soft shell, but is waterproof, not "water-resistant." Finally this jacket is not much heavier than a windbreaker, so you don't feel like you are wearing a really heavy plastic bag when you climb, run or go get the mail.
