If you're looking for a truly technical and bulletproof shell that is well designed shell and thought out, then you'll likely love this jacket. In my case, however, I found it to be too stiff and less functional than ideal. Also, the neck, faceguard and hood are no doubt going to withstand big dumps but I found these to be a bit cumbersome when not in full lock down + helmet mode. Also, the plastic crunch sound triggered by your every move would no doubt be less annoying after some good use and breaking in but gives you a sense as to the shell's burliness. Runs true to size as I'm 6'1 200 and L was spot on, though it's fuller sized than traditional tech fit. All said, a destruction-proofed jacket with great features but I opted to return and am considering the Albert and Genius as preferred options with a less rigid shell exterior and similar waterproofness/breathability.
