Not As Expected

I finally had a chance to take this jacket out in a real snow storm to test it's capabilities. We had a two foot storm with constant snowfall during a 6 mile snowshoe expedition.

The jacket performed well with it's windstopper capabilities but my mid layer fleece jacket was fairly damp on the outside. There were several dark patches, front and back where it was obvious that the GoreTex shell failed. I would not say this is a waterproof jacket. I will probably be returning it. :-(

It is probably fine for light rain or less lengthy snow exposure. Other than the waterproof issues, it's a nice jacket.
