Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I like these bags so much more than the BDs. They have more secure closures (so I can actually check the bag in on the airplane) and do way better in the rain. Bag already has much abrasion after one go up El Cap even with padding, but it's not too bad. I also really appreciate how quickly Metolius will send replacement straps to you if you happen to lose one.

Love it, but not when it really rains

Recently wore this jacket quite a bit for climbing . It is a terrible layer for when rain (or anything heavier than a drizzle) is definite. Despite the coating and finish, this jacket doesn't really keep me that dry. And when it's a little misty and windy out, it is a bummer that there aren't any pockets to keep your hands warm and dry in. Also, if you happen to get caught in a major downpour in this jacket, you will get soaked. However, this thing does dry out fast, and for windy days it's an awesome layer. I love how small packs down and how light it is. I decided last minute to take this baby with me on El Cap and was so happy I did -- perfect active wind layer to have clipped to your harness.
