This fabric is perfect for hot weather. The cut is generous and flattering, and the overall design great.

I bought the "berry" color....it's no where near as vibrant as the picture here and looks more like a faded pink than purple. Kind of disappointing. Still, I'm keeping it because I love the fabric.

I love this jacket - bought it to take on a trekking trip through Nepal. It feels sturdier than many other lightweight down jakets and fits great.....except across the bust.

This is not an umcommon problem for me, but the large size barely fits my 36DD upper body (arms and waist are spot-on). Ladies - don't expect to be able to wear your most bodacious bra with this jacket, especially not with any thick underlayers! Luckily I'll be wearing sports bras, but I still wish there was a tad more room.

I'm a marine biologist and was really in need of something like this. I use this pack for everything. The "wet" compartment is big enough to hold my board shorts, rash guard, booties (not much room to spare, though) and does a good job of keeping the main compartment dry. I'm not much of a skateboarder, but the straps along the back designed for holding one are perfect for securing my fins when I come out of the field.

When I'm not sopping wet, this is my academic pack. I usually carry two computers- a 16" vaio and a little Eee netbook. The laptop compartment is big enough to hold both at once and I can easily fit a few textbooks and files with them.

The straps are comfortable and quality is on par with what I expect from Patagonia.

One complaint though: the computer compartment can be a bit tough to access if you have a larger computer and a full pack. The main zipper doesn't extend down as far as I would like, but this is pretty trivial in comparison to all the good things about it.
