"Great shell, protects from elements, fits well"
I approve of this jacket whole heartily.I use this jacket for ski touring & just about any activity where I will perspire and possible get chilled. I recently ice skated on a frozen lake in this jacket (awesome by the way!!)It definitely breathes well and protects you from wind and water (snow's included with water)The only con about this jacket is it doesn't seem as well built as the mountaineering & alpine specific DryQ elite jackets (Drystein, Victorio, Jovian). (it's only 2 layers vs 3 layers so it's not as thick... and durable?)
