I have three other pairs of La Sportiva footwear - heavy K3 boots, Mythos climbing shoes, and some hiking boots as well. These remind of a cross between a boot and a climbing shoe. They are very comfortable but rugged and protect your feet very well. Lacing is very nice. Grip is great for running or for scrambling. Great QC - not a stitch out of place, very nicely put together. Not waterproof at all - the grey parts are actually mesh that provide ventilation, but let the water (and cold air) through as well.

Top notch fabrics (very light and durable), thoughtful design, and as always superb Arc'Teryx quality. The reinforcement on the shoulders adds a bit of windproofness and rain resistance.
Very warm, but can be worn by itself only if there is no wind - windproofness is almost zero. Good size hand pockets and a handy inside pocket for ID/other small items. I have it in Blue Corn and it is a very nice color.
Overall, the jacket is great - makes jackets from other manufacturers (who shall remain unnamed) look like a cruel joke from the 80s. Perhaps not worth the list price, but get it if it goes on sale.
