Read the reviews on this one b/c if you are shelling out the money you need to know what you are looking for. As previous reviewers have noted, if you are looking for a light weight shell for backpacking or other outdoor activity, this is the ticket. I already have a lightweight MH shell (already have the epic which is not as nice but for 1/3 the price and the I already own it and it does the job in most all situations I have used it in) of similar weight, so I ended up returning it. Now, if you want an all around shell that rocks, buy this (the size is a little tricky as noted by others, the large fit very well on my 5'9" 185 frame as an athletic fit with a little room for layering). The main reason I ended up returning (aside from a bit of redundancy that I couldn't warrant spending the money on) was because I was looking for a heavier weight fabric. It definitely has a durable weight for a light weight shell, but I wanted something a little heavier to supplement my epic (which is admittedly lighter than this). I ended up in a Gore-Tex Performance for the weight I wanted (and at 1/2 the price on SAC), but if I need to replace my spring/summer/fall shell this is where I am turning next. FYI, I have noticed that the color on BC products tend to be a little lighter than online, so keep that in mind, but still a sharp looking product overall. One other note, I think they could add an inside pocket in the future to improve this one over. Really hated sending this one back, but I just couldn't justify it.
