I got mine from the Sierra D outlet - obnoxious red was on clearance for $30! I was a bit hesitant about the loud color, but I've turned out to really love this jacket. I'm 6'3", 170lb and the medium works great for me, even with room for a fleece. It's super-light and has a stuff sack, so I can take it about anywhere. In moderately heavy rain with a heavy pack, I've seen the shoulders seep enough to turn dark red but not get me wet. 3 pockets are a plus, pit zips a must. Material feels sturdy, though not quite as much so as my buddy's mountain hardwear epic jacket.
Highly recommended!

Mine's just slightly different, so I may have last year's, but this thing is great! I have the Large, and though I've only done 1-night trips so far, it has capacity for quite a bit more. Super comfortable; well vented; the shoulder straps made my collar bones a little sore and irritated afterwards - odd but not a huge deal...
Haven't tried it in the rain, but it sheds waterfall spray and damp cliff drips quite well.
