    Comments about Men's Realm Jacket:

    I got a medium based on online reviews, I wish I had gone with a large, at 6'4" 185 it was little too small, I bet if I had the Large it would have been great. I liked the jacket in all other regards, never got to test it out I gave it to my brother it was more his size, he likes it.

      The waterproof, windproof, and soft nature of this hard shell are amazing. The front zipper catches sometimes, but if you hold the other side of the jacket down while you zip it, then it is not such a big deal. Great jacket overall.

        Hitting monsoon season and loving this shell so far. Lighter weight than most 3L shells, and feels "stouter" than similar weight ones.

        Looking forward to winter. If this is any where near the Skyward pant, same fabric, it'll be admirable.

            Have had this jacket about six months and am very impressed. The fit is slim as stated, I'm 6' and 160lbs and went with a large and have room for a mid layer when needed and I feel the medium would have been a little tight. I've worn it from 25 degrees and snow to 75 degrees in down pours and have found the ascent shell to breathe far better than other jackets putting my 3L goretex pro shell to shame. One issue I have had is the jacket is prone to staining but it is a rather small issue.

              From going back and forth to work, trekking through the forest, to skiing in the alps, this jacket does it all whether it's dry, wet, hot or freezing out. Super thin, and breathable during hot summer days when you need protection from precip. It's also roomy enough to layer up during the colder months on the trail or on the slopes all while taking up little space in the backpack when you need to ditch it. This jacket stays in reach all year long due to the ever changing European weather I live in. I'm 5'8" and 155-160lbs and the large is a perfect fit. I've owned this jacket for over a year now and it's still solid.

                The Realm is the best mountaineers protection out there. No extras on the jacket slim and light. Very good breathability during trenous activity, but waterproof for a long time. Because it is very lightweight it is not as durable, but that is a small disadvantage I believe.

                  In the past I've used a combo of a heavy, burly, but bomber waterproof shell, and then for ultralight days or times with a lower chance of rain, I'd use a very minimal option like a Helium Jacket. Since getting the Realm, I haven't been tempted to carry or wear any of my prior options. It has stretch, durability, breathability, and 100% bomber storm protection. It's just a smidgen heavier than the minimalist ultralight shells, but has all the features of the $400 jackets.

                  Best Rain Jacket Ever

                  Comments about OR Men's Realm Jacket:

                  I'll start by saying this is the most expensive rain jacket I have ever owned. It has been worth every penny. I use it almost exclusively for biking. I've used it during all seasons. If I use this as my outer shell I can greatly reduce the number of layers needed underneath. I was biking in 15 degree weather with only a Patagonia Nano Air and synthetic t-shirt underneath. That's how good this jacket performs. I've used other rain jackets from Marmot, Mountain Hardware, and Patagonia; None of them came close to the full performance spectrum of this jacket. The material looks the same as the day I bought it. I would say I have 90 days of use and abuse on this jacket.

                  What I love
                  - 100% Windproof (It blocks all of the wind)
                  - 100% Waterproof (I've never once gotten wet)
                  - 100% Breathable (Trust me, it is)
                  - Easy to use with my Outdoor Research Revel Shell Mittens
                  - The hood actually fits and stays over my bicycle helmet

                  What I don't like
                  -The zipper can get be a bit finicky when it gets to the top 2 inches. It acts like its going to get stuck but if you give it a little motivation it moves right a long. It has never actually gotten stuck though.

                  This is my number one go to outer layer. Hands down. No question about it.
