light and amazing! Does what is supposed to by stopping the wind, but not really waterproof, so if you are in the rain for a substancial period of time this jacket is not for you. I use mine for trail running in the morning and on chilly/breezy days with a low chance of rain. A bit pricy, but made like all other arcteryx gear, very well.

I will second that..
This jacket weighs nothing and packs extremely small. I haven't been in rain with it but it has handled wind really well. It is also cut big enough to layer under fairly easily.
