Great jacket both on price and features!

I bought this jacket after looking at many and comparing. I wanted a quality jacket that didn't break the bank, something I could stuff in my pack hiking, fishing, etc and not feel horrible if something happened to it.I had previously been using a goretex shell and that was my biggest concern using it. I think Marmot is one of the better brands out there and own several of their products, so I bought it. I was impressed with the jacket beacuse it was lightweight, yet durable- not cheap feeling material. It also fit perfect, just big enough that I could fit a light-weight fleece under it in the fall (or early spring if your in the west). Recently, we had a typical Wyoming spring wet weather event ( wind-rain with periods of heavy-weight snow) and the jacket held up great! I had no leaks, no condensation inside (you know, when your arms feel slimy) and it cut the wind pretty well. Overall I was pretty impressed with my the venture out in jacket. I hope to put it to the test all summer long. The only thing I would improve would be some inside chest pockets- for phones,gps units, maps, etc.
