Voted 4/5

Very lightweight jacket. Lots of pockets and venting but very good at keeping out the wind and cold. Zippers can be fiddley. Hood is effective but the pulls while attached at both ends to not blow in your face can still get in the way and be bothersome. Yellow colour makes for good visablity.

Jacket works great for 3 season outings, lots of pockets where you need them. The internal mess and venting allow for good circulation. Tighten the lower waist strap and the venting of the jacket keep blowing winds out. Very light weight and pack ability give this a 5 star with me.

The price was even better at $120
