This jacket does exactly what I wanted it to do. It keeps me dry, blocks the wind, packs down small, and is so light I don't even remember that I have it. There is no excuse for not having a rain jacket when you own this. I put it in every bag I pack for anything ranging from my climbing bag, to backpack. I throw it in my car if I am not carrying a bag because it is; Just. That. Good. My one complaint, and it's a big one for me, is that there are no pockets. I wear this over my Refuge Hoodie when it starts to rain, and it blocks the pockets that I would normally keep my hands in, without replacing them. I understand that this is supposed to be more of a last case scenario type of jacket, but I don't go out if I know it's going to rain and therefore don't own a dedicated hard shell. I would like to have pockets so I don't have to keep my hands out in the rain, especially if its cold.
