I would have given this jacket 5 stars if it weren't for the zipper being a little difficult at times. It is hard to get started, easy to zip up, but then gets stuck in spots when trying to unzip it. This is because of the backing they added to the zipper to not let wind in. The backing strip is sewed in right next to the zipper which causes it to get stuck. You have to pull the strip away a little, and it will unzip the rest of the way. Decided to keep the jacket anyway because it fits awesome and had all the other features I was looking for. Gotten lots of compliments. Blocks wind REALLY well.

Bought this jacket because I wanted a softshell with pitzips... breathability was amazing. I took off my backpack and was amazed to find my pack was all sweaty. Was warm and dry and cozy inside my coat.
Sizing was on the small side, but not a full size.
