I purchased the Valencia Orange/Dark Eggplant Purple jacket and decided to return it. The choice is entirely aesthetic because it is a good garment. However the photography shows muted colors and the Orange is incandescent and Purple is more grape than eggplant.
The garment itself is a 2.5 (proprietary HyVent membrane) layer jacket, fairly light, with a comfortable (no helmet) hood. The sold out everywhere Rab Maverick - 2013 Outside Gear of the Year- is the same 2.5 L theme with e-Vent. I know HyVent is not e-Vent, but this is under $100 and there are pit zips.
I have a Gore-Tex Pro Shell, but I don't want to be carrying it in my trunk, golf bag, backpack, or wearing it at a music festival where ashes might mark it. So, this is a summer, late spring, early fall, emergency shell and it would have served well if I was prepared to be seen in it.
Backcountry.com has incredible deals, and even stupendous ones is you aren't too fussy about colors, but even I have to draw the line somewhere.
Look at the TNF Venture Jacket, too. I'm trying it next, it seems to be almost the same jacket. It is an inch longer down the back and is almost the identical weight and same material.
Ultimately, I am using the Marmot PreCip. It is also a 2.5 layer proprietary membrane and was not as deeply discounted. Very similar fit and It was still not expensive, and better looking, imho.
