4 5

Used this shell for 2 rain/sleet days in the midwest, and for 3 days skiing out west in low 30s high 20s weather. Waterproofing is good, no leaks in either my testing in the shower or out in the elements.

Fit is good for me, not baggy or bulky, but was able to layer (used with a powerstretch fleece or baselayer and down sweater). I'm 5'7" 145lbs, avg to slender build. Got the small.

Few gripes: 1. the material is fairly stiff out of the box, which leads to bunching (primarily in the midsection for me) and makes it uncomfortable when the collar is zipped all the way up, and the hood sticks straight out the back rather than lays on my back, which looks a bit funny. This has gotten a bit better with use, and I'm hopeful that it will continue to get better. 2. The drawcords for the hood don't have true toggles, just these little foam things on the cord, so the cords won't stay tightened. Not a huge deal because the hood is pretty small.

Overall, a heck of a shell for the money, and would recommend.
