My significant other bought me this for Christmas to replace my old one - I'll seriously love him forever for getting it for me. This jacket keeps me dry in torrential rain and breathes really well. It works great as a winter shell hiking in the white mountains in NH. One thing to be aware of is that Arc designed it so that the same sized Atom and other such layers fit perfect under - so it ran a bit big on me (which is fine because it means it's more "airy" when its warm out and there's plenty of room for good layers when it's cold). Does it breathe as well as a softshell? no. But the trade off there is that it is way more waterproof and about as windproof as you can get. If you're looking for a good jacket to serve you in all different conditions this does the trick.
