Closeouts. The Berghaus Front Range shell jacket provides lightweight, breathable weather protection for moving quickly in the mountains. It features a DWR finish, a storm hood and stashes easily in your pack.

Nice looking jacket and well made. I purchased this to wear over fleece for alpine skiing on medium cold days. After four days of use at Beaver Creek in a mix of weather (fog, drizzle, snow, sleet), I can say that this is too lightweight for many outdoor activities and it's breathability is not nearly as good as gore-tex.
That said, the waterproof zippers did their jobs and the pockets and pit-zips are well done. STPs price was OK for the value (but not fantastic), but if you are going to do anything more physical than walking the dog in the rain, you may want to look for something more activity specific that will have the necessary breathability and toughness.

I returned the jacket because it was too small. I measured the chest and it is two inches smaller than my Mountain Hardware jacket. The quality is excellent but it didn't fit. All my other jackets are the same size (L) and fit great.

A lightweight and well constructed jacket from a reputable company. This thing packs very small making it easy to stuff away. Articulated sleeves mean more freedom of movement. Fit is perfect, (i'm 5'10", 165 lbs and the large is perfect), not too tight, but has enough room for layering in cooler weather. Berghaus calls it an "active fit". Overall, a solidly built jacket that will keep you dry, is comfortable to wear, and looks good while doing it. The colors are vibrant (I have the green/grey) and with a coupon, the STP price cannot be beat. I might grab another in a different color before this baby sells out.
