I picked up this duffel with a good discount, and I felt I got a decent deal at that rate. It's adequate for 2-3 days of travel for a guy like me who can go 3 days on two pairs of pants, 3 shirts, and the rest of the necessary accouterments. the construction is very durable and well done, as expected from an Eagle Creek product. The color and styling are good enough to pass muster with about any age level.

This is a very thin zip-neck pullover. It probably needs to be worn with a shirt underneath because you can pretty much see through the material. Despite being incredibly thin, it is amazingly warm and great for wearing underneath a softshell in active conditions. My wife and I went snowshoeing in the Rockies in late December and early January (read: 20-30 degrees before windchill) and I was perfectly comfortable with the Patagonia Capilene 2 zip-neck over a t-shirt and under a quality soft-shell. Very satisfied given the $20 discount I had. I'm not sure I would pay full price?!

There's an unwritten rule about rain jackets. If the rain jacket doesn't have an inside mesh liner (to keep the coat from sticking to your skin), it has pit zips to allow air flow. So its either mesh liner or pit zips. But the Zorro LT sports neither of those--which makes it a prime candidate for making you sweat due to low breathability. I saw several reviews also note the lack of pit zips, and recite that the mesh lined side pockets could double as air vents if left open. But I agree with those reviewers' viewpoints that such an option is poor. Those two side pockets are the only ones, so if you have to leave them open for air flow, you've eliminated all the pockets. Furthermore, the pockets are low and too far below the armpit to give good breathability to that sweat-prone region.

On top of that, the hood fits very loosely around the head. It's the kind where you turn your head to glance sideways, but the hood doesn't go with. You end up staring at the inside of your hood. And even though you're probably pondering about me having a little peanut head, think again. I've got a pretty good size melon on my shoulders.

Positives? It's a really nice looking coat and probably repels the elements just fine. I wouldn't know, since I sent mine back and picked up a nice Under Armour rain jacket for the same price (59.99 on sale).
