Great in California not so good in England
Ever since I got this jacket a few years ago I use it just about exclusively. My hard shell seems to always sit in the back of my pack now. That is if I am climbing in California!

In England on the other hand the hard shell tends to get used a fair bit still. This jacket can handle a mist or light rain for a while but you'll need something more substantially weatherproof in the Lake District.

But it does what it is designed for well. It flexes well and is pretty wind resistant. As is the case with most soft shells a great jacket for alpine climbing in the Sierras but not an all rounder.
