Voted 5/5

I am very impressed with this jacket. It is all I use for all my mountaineering, wet weather backpacking and running in the rain. It has done very well to keep me dry and even more impressingly it breathes very well. I am someone who sweats alot and this jacket has kept me very comfortable. It is also light weight and compactable. The zip pits are very long and the zippers have held up well. The hood is also large enough for a climbing helmet. My only complaint is that the "additional welding" to some of the seams (which are more for looks than anything) has come loose in friction spots such as the front pocket zippers and the arm pits. It does not affect the proformance though and I have just cut it off and glued the ends down. Great product for the price. Best jacket I have used...
