"It is well made, solid, and has great colors! Keeps you dry for days!"
I love gear. I really like great jackets, especially when they help keep me dry. I got this jacket through the Gore Tex MT program and it is a solid jacket. I was very impressed with several different features of the jacket. The jacket is similar to other similar jackets, but it stands out in the following ways. The cuffs are unique, they have a different type of material that helps them fit snugly over gloves. Also the cut of the jacket is wonderful, it has ample room for layering. It has great color and the pit zips and other zipper features are wonderful. The jacket is well made and it is a great day when GoreTex and Patagonia get together! Yahoo for staying dry!
