Great jacket.
I've been using this jacket mainly during the spring and fall seasons when the temps are cooler but not freezing. I've found it to work very well at wicking sweat and repelling rain at the same time. It's comfortable, looks alright, and the material holds up to abrasion well. The main downside to this jack is the lack of zippers near the old armpit area for added ventilation, and the retail cost. Other than those it's performed and held up great.
