    I purchased this jacket for winter hiking and snowshoeing here in northern Idaho. I needed a breathable, windproof garment that was light weight, water repellent vs. waterproof and that would stuff into a pack without a hassle. This jacket fits that need perfectly. Being a shell, it can be worn with whatever form of underlayment is necessary; having year-round flexibility is important given the price of the garment.

    I ordered a medium for my 5'9", 153 lb frame and the fit is perfect. I add layers as needed.

    The assembly of the garment is impeccable; TNF black is a beautiful color and the texture is nearly luxurious.

    If you are willing to ante up the cash for this jacket, I don't think you will be disappointed.

    loved it!!

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    this was my favorite shell, it breathes great, almost waterproof, used it for everything!! only gave it three stars because it snagged lightly on a doorknob and ripped the napolean pocket.

    For those of you who have this, how is the...

    For those of you who have this, how is the fit? It says Athletic but looks boxy or regular fit from picture. Thanks.

    I am 5'10" 160, I got a large and it fits great! Still room for layers... I have been wearing it for about a year now and love it. Need to re-up the DWR though, as it is starting to loose its waterproofness after a year.
