Impressed

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I've only used this shell once, but I have to say I was very impressed. Climbed a mountain in the Adirondacks and purposely wore this all day to see how it performed. It was about 0°F all day (sometimes colder) and I wore two base layers and a mid layer beneath the shell. Normally, if I had worn one of my other Gore Tex shells, I would have steamed myself on the hike up the mountain, but the Axiom breathed really well. My inner layers still got a bit wet with perspiration in my lower back region where my pack sits, but that happens even without a shell. The rest of me was nice and dry. No moisture on the inside of the jacket either. Very impressive,

Feature-wise the Axiom is pretty stripped-down, but that's exactly what I want. It's light and functional. The hood is large, so it's good that it is adjustable.

I'm looking forward to seeing how it performs in the rain.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I was looking for a lightweight down sweater/jacket, and found this on sale. It does exactly what I wanted. It's super lightweight - you can hardly tell you're wearing it except that you're warmer - and packs very small. I wore it at about 30�F with just a t-shirt under it and was comfortably warm. The hood makes a big difference in keeping me warm. I wish it had a drawstring to snug it down though. The Pertex outer shell is very light. I'd recommend wearing a shell over it if you will be wearing a pack or going through brush. I recommend it for anyone looking for an ultralight insulating layer.
