This ECWCS jacket is my new favorite rain/wind layer hard shell jacket for wildland hiking and hunting. I'd been looking at similar jackets and couldn't pass up this one, priced at 10% to 25% of other vendors. Upon arrival, I was amazed at the build quality. The Marpat camo is very effective in PNW forests/rangelands and everywhere else I'm finding - it hides wherever I lay it down - on couches, inside backpacks,etc. Only drawback is heavy duty construction means weight and this (goretex?) hard shell will be noisy when bush stalking. STP is the most amazing merchant for high quality and high-value outdoor gear.
