Just one flaw, but a big one - the fly zipper is NOT waterproof at all.
If your jacket is not going to cover it completely, then prepare to get water right where you do not want it to get to... Really unpleasant sensation.... :-(
If you are looking for glasses which you can wear entire day without pain - these are your ticket. Temples can be molded exactly to the shape you want them to be. I am literally forgetting that I am wearing sunglasses!
With temples going around your ears they also will firmly stay on when you move.
I am very happy with them.
Also what is the country of origin for this jacket?
will this jacket fit as a mid layer under a Beta AR which has short front?
I have a Beta AR jacket, which has short(er) front. Would this jacket fit under it, or is it too long?
How do you wash/dry the thing?
Great bottle, holds temperature well. Bought it for multiple functions with multiple cups and very happy with it.
Ok, actually 2 questions
1. Do you ship to Canada
2. Is strap included.
Used this sweater under a drysuit for scuba diving. Base layer was just a thin HH shirt, then this sweater and then laminated drysuit. Water temperature was +9 Celsius. For those farenhiters - it is bloody cold. Felt awesome - the sweater does it's job 100%. Even more, after getting back to shore between dives, took the drysuit off in a wind ( the waves started to show white caps, so I would say 13 knots). Sweater was able to hold the wind for me.
I am very happy with it. Worth the money.
I use it for a)trail running in Vancouver's rain-forest (it can rain for two weeks straight here) b)skiing on local mountains.
The jacket itself does not limit it's uses. It is build exceptionally well and I am impressed with the quality - they compromised for nothing. Not many things you can buy today made that well.
The material is light but very strong - I took couple of bad falls in it - no problems, not even a discoloration! Pockets are sufficient. There are no pit zips, but actually, that is what makes e-vent to vent the vapor.
The jacket is all they say it is. It is light enough to be worn just on top of base layer for running. The hood is adjustable enough to stay out of my way and still protect from heavy rain.
To go skiing I just use a bit heavier base and heavy mid layer. Jacket protects my back well on a chair and does great on runs. Keeps me dry and warm.
I would recommend it as jack of all trades. If you like me and do not want to spend big bucks on closing and rather have only one universal hard shell.
