Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I can't speak to the current season version, but I have had this jacket for nearly three years and couldn't imagine taking an outdoor adventure to a snowy or wet climate without bringing it along. I hiked for hours in the rain and was comfy and dry compared to companions who were wearing non-gore-tex jackets. It's my go-to in the city as well during spring downpours. I'm 5'9" and about 145 pounds--I chose a medium and it's big enough to put over layers, but doesn't look ridiculous when I wear it in town.
