I used the Quasar for a week in Alaska. The hood is tight and won't zip high over your face with a Large Camp helmet, but it works partially zipped, as it zips high over the nose. It breathes well, and after getting base layers damp, it allowed drying without taking it off. It blocked stiff wind well when I used it over light base, and soft shell. No pit zips are needed and allows better freedom of movement when skinning and easier packing. Light weight, no zips or pockets allow good breathing, easy packing. MH tops, the shoulders are not a big as Patagonia, which are designed for surfers. Don't need pockets which are covered by pack and straps anyways.
I liked the Quasar features (no pockets, pullover, hood zip over face) better than the Neoshell though I liked the Neoshell fabric better. Its the design and features that won out over the fabric.
