Great Jacket

Verified Buyer Reviewed by kbp_123 from Virginia Beach, VA on Tuesday, April 19, 2011
Packs down small and is relatively lightweight. I'm 5'9", 200 lbs and bought a large. The fit is perfect and I like the longer length in the back on the updated version. I use this jacket for biking, hiking, camping and for everyday use. During strenuous activity, unzipping the pockets and pit zips makes a huge difference in preventing moisture from building up inside the coat. I've also found that wearing a long sleeve base layer keeps moisture at bay better than a short sleeve layer. Something to do with skin directly touching the fabric. This is my 2nd precip, left my first one (purchased in 2006) at the Wise shelter in GHSP last fall.
