Voted 5/5

This is very possibly the most versitile piece of clothing I've ever owned. The fabric is great, it feels like a nice shirt, not a plastic sack, and is fuzzy next to the skin. It sheds water very well, it will take a good 30 minutes of hard rain to soak through, and it drys very quickly. It's light enough to pack small and not add much warmth (comparable to a midweight capilene layer) while still providing a bit of additional warmth and weather protection. The hood is very well designed, and will fit over a climbing helmet. The front zipper is nice and long, it vents very well. I've used it hiking, XC and tele skiing, and climbed chimneys in it, and it has held up perfectly in the 8 months I've had it. Be aware that Cloudveils sleezes run very long, I needed a large to be able to layer a fleece under it, but wish the sleezes were a bit shorter. The drawcord hem and velcro cuffs are simple, unobtrusive, and work well. I where this more than any other piece of outdoor gear I own, and if I'm not wearing it it's in my pack. Rather pricey, but I would say worth it.
