Dan DaltonGreatest jacket...

Voted 5/5

ever! I am continually impressed by this jacket. It is super light weight, (cannot even really tell I am wearing it), and it shed water, no problem. Really like the reinforced elbows and shoulders as well for when you scrape up against rock. The stow away hood is great, it is nice not to have the hood flapping around and getting in the way when you don't need it. If you are looking for the lightest waterproof and windproof multi-use jacket, this is the one.
