OK, so I have a thing for jackets, as a lot of us probably do. I ordered this one, as well as a Patagonia Torrentshell from Moosejaw recently and really like them...I'm keeping both! This jacket is excellent...I have an older Mtn HW and have always gone to it for the rain. I can see and feel the difference in the "newer" technology of materials in this newer model, and I really don't miss the pit zips (does not have, compared to the Patagonia), as the jacket won't need it with the breathability anyway I think. I'm 5'11" and 170 lbs, and this jacket seems to fit pretty true to size.
After fishing around in the sea of light weight breathable jackets I finally decided to run with the Plasmic. I just returned from a 5 day windy, and damp trip in Bigs Sur, and I'm pleased to say the jacket exceeded my expectations. Not to mention the jacket looks great in shark.
