Love this jacket
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size

This jacket is great. I really hate most hard shells, but the Dry Q Elite on this works like a champ. I've used it mostly in the Whites for winter day hikes and for a trip to Katahdin this January. Love the feel and fit of it. Breathes as well or better than any hard shell I've owned (and I've tried Neo Shell, eVent, Gore Pro, etc.) and is bomber. For the price it's a steal in my opinion. I certainly wouldn't use it in the summer, but for true alpine use in full on winter conditions, you can't go wrong.

This thing is great. I tried a few of the other "stuffable" packs and this is by far the best for me(as long as you don't need axe loops). The shoulder straps actually have padding and it rides quite well on the back (20.5" torso here). Very lightweight for what you are getting here. Just shove this in your bigger pack and you have a great little pack for dayhikes and summit scrambles. Built like a brick ____house.
