"Gets the job done and keeps you comfy in the process."
I've only had this jacket for a few weeks but since then, I've hiked in a more than a handfull of time and worn it in the rain on several occasions. It does a great job of keeping you dry AND protecting you from harsh winds. Also, the zip ups on the side of the jacket might be my favorite feature-keeps you nice and dry from any sweating you might be doing inside the jacket. I've got a big field season coming up with daily hikes in humid, rainy conditions so that'll be the ultimate test! Solid jacket overall and I'm happy with it.
