Observations

Have used this jacket in conjunction with a fleece mid-layer, and it cuts the wind and sheds weather wonderfully! Breathes well! The high pockets are great for using with a pack and/or harness. The two interior pockets are also generous in size and very convenient. Not as 'pretty' as some other manufacturers pieces, but works VERY well. Sizing runs small, I am a medium in most everything, but needed a large to accommodate just a power stretch mid layer.
