Dow Williamsbest in class...

Voted 5/5

OR beat every one by ounces and functionality in three levels of shell jackets...the desert weight, climbing weight and alpine weight. This is their desert 6.8 ounces!!! Unbelievable how they got a taped jacket this light. OR jackets fit big. At 5'11", I wear smalls.
