Familiarity: I've used it several times

Granted, I'm usually pretty warm anyway, especially about 5 minutes into my run, but...

Breathes like a garbage bag. Obviously does a great job of blocking the wind and rain, but at the cost of making you sweat heavily. Might be better suited to road or trail biking in sketchy conditions where you're more concerned with wind and water protection than breathability. Just didn't work for me for running. Exchanged the Stormy Trail for the TNF Windstopper Hybrid jacket -- much better option for me. Blocks the wind, sheds rain, and breathes great.

Great layer. The slick nylon face sheds light rain and makes layering with fleece easy, i.e. no static and quick on and off in the sleeves. Breathes well, yet warm as 100-weight fleece, and a nice deep chest zipper for venting. A little pricey, but could take the place of several pieces of gear. Great for running, lounging, and hopefully skiing.
