This is a technical jacket with a primary purpose of keeping you dry. Like most shells, it provides protection from wind but where this jacket really shines is in wet, sloppy conditions.

Purchased jacket, along with bib overalls for a fishing trip to Alaska. Gear worked well. Keeping me dry and warm. Fabric was breathable. Also used when outdoors in rain. Can wear around town for wet fall and spring days. Would note that the fabric can not be sprayed clean so this may be a problem when handling bait.

Great jacket. Looks really well made and a lot of thought went into it. Has "hidden" internal drawstring to draw tight at the waist inside the jacket. Small drainholes in pockets, one pocket has a elastic detachable clip that you could attach a knife or small flashlite (won't fall overboard if the pocket is left open). Internal rubberized sleeves keep water out-again not visible. One minor peeve-the collar stands up quite high, this is due to the hidden hood. Not sure that there is anyway to improve that. Fabric looks/feels tough yet flexible. Superior in that regard to Gortex. Has enough room that is OK alone or with a fleece. I plan to use fishing in the spring/fall in the Northeast.

I just bought this jacket and really like it. I think it would be fine to wear in the 50s but anything lower, and you likely need an extra layer underneath. It is highly breathable, which is nice.
