The lightweight, breathable 70D Gore-Tex Paclite fabric sheds the elements and expels internal moisture, while the rugged Gore-Tex Pro Shell fabric adds reinforcement to shoulders and sides. A fully adjustable hood fits securely over a helmet, and TorsoFlohem-to-bicep side zips offer ventilation when the going gets tough.

I am a huge OR fan but this Jacket just doesn't cut it at all. Not for Alpine climbing, Ice climbing or skiing. First thing is that it is way to short and will not fit under a harness (I have an abnormally short torso and have never had this problem before with a jacket.) The zippers are so stiff even after 3 months it is near impossible to open and close without both hands on deck. The hand pockets are incredible tiny, so small in fact you can barely get a glove in let alone get the zipper open with one hand. The jacket was poorly executed. It actually frustrates me using it to the point where I do not even wear it anymore.
This jacket is only a shell and can be used all year. I purchased a Medium at 165lbs and 5'10" and it fits just right...not baggy, cut slim, but enough room for a base layer and my primaloft jacket without fuss. The arms are slightly long, which I like, and they are flared to accommodate under gloves (I can fit over gloves inside as well). The styling of the blue jacket looks better in person than in the photos.The main zipper may give me problems in the future, it is very small and doesn't seem like it can take a beating. Also, the pockets are relatively small and you definitely need to take your gloves off to access them.There is also a headphone port on the inside pocket.
Waterproof. Durable fabric. Has proven worthy on all my recent hikes and backpacking trips in Virginia. A little bulky for summer use, but I don't hit the trail without this jacket on any other trip. Wish it had more than the 2 small pockets though.
The shell is bomber and durable. The full length zips are great as always. My only gripe is that the pockets suck. There are four main pockets plus an internal chest pocket. I guess people had problems getting used to the high pockets that sit above a hip belt, so they added high pockets and low pockets as a compromise. Now there are a lot of pockets that can't hold anything. Here is a list of items which have failed to fit in any of the jacket's pockets: climbing shoes, a thermos, a water bottle, a paperback book, a magazine, a dvd, a hard drive, winter double mittens (Altis), a 16 cm ice screw. As a general rule, if it's larger than your hands, it won't fit into the pockets.
If you're looking for just one waterproof/breathable shell that can do it all, the Furio is a really great option. It fits well but leaves enough room for layering; it's totally waterproof and extremely durable but still relatively lightweight and breathable thanks to the strategic placement of the different membranes; the hip-to-bicep pit zips give you an unprecedented degree of control over your ventilation. I needed a four-season shell that would work for everything from skiing the backcountry pow to bicycle commuting in pouring summer rains. I spent a long time searching among hardshells for "the one." After finding the Furio, that search is over.
