let's talk dryness
I bought this jacket about a year ago, and it is an amazing purchase. The jacket is light weight, and perfect for any summer activity. You can fold it into one of its pockets and place it in your pack. The fit is as described, and has some room for a mid-layer if you need to. I live in Mammoth where spring snow is known as sierra cement, and snow showers are the norm. This jacket does a great job of keeping you dry - normally spring jackets are drenched for days after a brush with the wet snow. Patagonia makes an amazing product for the price.
