MH Typhoon is very nice!
I bought this as a lightweight replacement shell jacket for climbing and hiking. I was a little afraid it wouldn't be durable, but it has held up to all the rock scraping, rain, wind, and bush the Rockies, Cascades, and Olympics have thrown at it so far. It is everything I wanted...light, compact in the pack, and watertight.
