I have literally lived in this jacket for days at a time, and it has never let me down. It's completely waterproof but so light you almost forget it's there; plus it packs down so small you can bring it with you just about anywhere. The pockets are nice and high, and it's cut long enough to go over any pants and to give you a bit of a seat. It's a straight-forward, no-frills jacket but still cut nicely enough that you could wear it out in public without being embarrassed (if that's an issue). All in all, A+.

Don't get me wrong, the R.5 top is a good shirt, lightweight, warm, and comfortable. But so is the midweight capilene shirt. I bought both at one time or another and use them primarily on extended rafting and camping trips (so believe me, I put them to the test), and to me the midweight capilene and the R.5 are pretty much the same--except that the capilene's cheaper. Whenever I pack, the first thing on my list is that midweight capilene top. The R.5 is just an extra.
