I've had this jacket for just a week and it's already proven its worth to me (it's awesome).
I've taken it backcountry touring twice, and both times it has kept me dry and warm, without me ever over-heating. Normally this has been an issue for me and I end up shedding layers until I'm practically in my baselayer on the skin-track, the breathability and venting on this jacket took care of that issue.
The hood fits great, and has multiple adjustments when you really need to batten down the hatches.
As mentioned in other reviews, the kangaroo pocket is huge, tons of room to hold gear, snacks, etc.
Lastly, for how good the tech specs are, the jacket just plain looks good. Holden has always strived for function paired with timeless fashion, and in my opinion they nailed it on this jacket.
