Got this for half off on SAC and am very happy with it. Even for full price i don't think this will disappoint most people. In my opinion this jacket sheds water very well, breathes well, packs down pretty small, has decent features for a stripped down rainshell and looks awesome. I'm quite sure you could find a jacket that would do all the things i just mentioned better but you would be hard pressed to find one for less that two bills that comes close. I was worried about the weight and durability of the fabric before i ordered one, usually anything ripstop is ultra lightweight. Not the case here, i was pleasantly surprised by how durable the fabric is. On the other had they could have used a better cinch for the hood, the neoprene fastener is junk. The worst part about this jacket are the wrist closure, it just is so flimsy. Another half ounce to make this jacket a little better would have gone a long way. I am 6foot even and weigh 165lbs and a large fits with a little room to layer. Good buy.
