This is a great jacket, I have been in multi day rain storms, snow storms and havent had a single problem. Only drawback its a tad on the heavy side

This will be my second winter with this jacket. I wore it on winter trips last year. It kept me warm and dry at 12,000 feet at 10 degrees and 30-40mph winds on Pikes Peak this past January. I find it roomy enough to layer underneath if necessary.

I have been extremely happy with it although I would second the notion that it is a tad on the heavy side.

This is a good option for those not wanting to drop $400 or $500 on a high end gore-tex jacket.
