Bought it mostly for spring/fall hiking because I was worried it might be too "techy" for every day wear. Well it has exceeded my usage expectations by a wide margin. I started hiking in it in january and never got cold. I've had it out from 30F to about 70F and it is perfect through the whole range. This jacket isnt a storm shell but it handles light showers and flurries without batting an eye.

The other upside is that my worries about styling were unfounded, it looks great, even gotten compliments from friends. So with all that in mind you probably guessed that I rarely have left the house without it. Im almost going to be sad when the temps starting staying above 70F and it goes to the closet for a few months.

One note. Sleeves are pretty long, I have long arms and they would even be a tad long on me if not for the genius cuff adjustment and articluated elbows to keep it from bunching in the wrong places.

Incredibly light, thin, soft and stretchy, it stuffs into its own pocket smaller than my fist. Large fits me perfect (6'2" 215, and Im usually between L and XL because of sleeve length) Doesnt absorb sweat, but it does condense water on the inside face, so it may not be the most breathable shell ever. But the best attribute is the wind blocking power. Feel free to run in those cold windy days with this thing.
