So I must admit, I bought this on impulse from sac. I was looking for a winter shell to go over a synthetic insulated jacket, and this poppped up. The breathability is quite good (have only had it out in one humid rain session without any claminess issues), and the shell is quite light. I'm not sure how this jacket will hold up in the long run, but for a lightweight rain shell, or ski jacket with enough layers underneath, it's worth what I paid. All the seams seem fine, though they are done in non-traditional patterns (fine with me), and there is also a subtle pattern of grid-like appearance (probably just of the fibers). The drawstring is pretty thin, so I'll have to watch that I don't pull that too hard, the fabric is pretty thin (ie light weight, but also maybe not the best for winter) and there are only a few pockets, which generally will suffice, but yeah, wanted to get this review up so there was more than only 2 stars for someone not liking the color. I'm 6'4", 165lbs and I bought a L (as mentioned below). I also tried the medium and it was definitely too small for me, both in length and in the shoulder/armpit area, though the sleeves were only slightly short on me (still long for a medium).
