On a backcountry hunt I lost my rain jacket, wore this piece all day in rain, sleet, snow, and wind on the day I got my sheep. With a sheep down and soaked to the core in 40 degree weather I was able to stay warm enough to get quarters in the pack and get back to camp without having to put on my dry clothes. That allowed me to warm back up in my dry warm clothes once in my tent, instead of having to change mid packout and soak my other insulation layers. I may not have died, but it could have been close. This piece is amazing, it dries incredibly fast and is warm when wet and cool when moving. I'm buying more.
