    I haven't gotten to take it out in the extremes yet, but it did keep me warm and dry during very constant rain. This jacket is very comfortable and feels quite interesting to the touch. I saw other reviews say that it doesn't provide any warmth, but I found it kept me very warm (although I do tend to run on the warm side) on a blustery and rainy day. Pockets are nice and roomy, and kept things dry in the rain. I am 5'9 and 200 and went with the large. The medium size fit, but didn't leave much room to layer underneath. I have other OR products, and this fit was similar to those. The only small problem I have with it is that the hood is very large if you aren't wearing a helmet, but that is really just splitting hairs and I am sure I will appreciate that when I do wear a helmet. Overall I am extremely pleased with it and would happily suggest it.

    I don't know of too many soft shell jackets with pit zips, which is what attracted me to the Mithrilite. It also claims to be waterproof--and it certainly did bead water nicely when I gave it the faucet test. I ordered a large, which is my usual size and it's definitely meant for layering. I thought the extra room, while helpful for the trail, looked a little unkempt for use around town so I sent it back. (If I had a beer gut, this thing would be great!) It's also a bit heavy for backpacking; although, probably great for day hikes in the cold. Tough call. Might reorder if I gain some weight this winter...

    This is a great jacket. Sizing seems to be a bit on the large side, but I don't mind as I'm using this in colder weather when I'll be layering anyway.

    I think some people order jackets like this and expect to simultaneously feel every breeze when they want to while being impervious to moisture. That's not the way it works. I have both the OR Mithril and Mithrilite jackets. Both, as waterproof soft shells, are heavier than my more technical GoreTex or eVent shells, but they breathe well, are warmer and ARE waterproof. My favorite use for them is in the winter. That extra breathability helps when working hard in snow, and they both handle any snow accumulation very well. I use them around town for rainy days occasionally, but generally prefer a Paclite or Pertex Sheild fabric for that. If you're not a jacket fiend like myself, you could do much worse for a general-use waterproof shell.

    The hood on the Mithrilite is easy to adjust and I really like the full side-zips. I bought my Mithril jacket before OR introduced that feature, and it really adds to the versatility of the Mithrilite. Highly recommended.
