I had always been a skeptic on why a jacket could possibly cost so much. I was given a gift card and figured it would be worth a try with all of the things that I like to do outside. WOW. I can't believe how functional the jacket is. It somehow keeps you hot when it's cold out without over heating when it's warmer. I have used this jacket in all types of situations and I have not noticed any signs of wear and tear. Get one now! You wont regret it!
I recently traveled throughout Australia, New Zealand and Southeast Asia with this jacket packed away in my carry-on backpack, and it fit super nicely. As the name suggests, it is very light. Still waiting to figure out how it gives you speed too... anyway, it has solid construction and has always kept me dry when I needed it to. Fit is very nice - long where you need it (I'm wearing XL at 6'5" 220lb), and the hood is just the right size. My only hesitation is that the water seems to accumulate a little bit on the outside of the jacket, as opposed to beading up like it does on many other waterproof jackets. That being said, it has never once penetrated through, and I think that it may just be an artifact of the Gore-Tex Pro's breath-ability (a good thing). Also, the pockets are very large - I even stuffed my Canon T3i digital SLR camera inside of them at times to hide it while traveling through sketchy areas. A nice feature, especially during a freak rainstorm in Thailand.
