    good construction, great fit. Just a shell allows for versatility for other seasons.

    This jacket is exactly what I needed for Northwestern Washington alpine backcountry skiing. It's waterproof and breathable, roomy enough for under layers, and the burgundy color is great. I have the O.R. shell pants too, which are equally perfect.

    I've only had this jacket for about 2 weeks and have worn it in some windy conditions and it is windproof. I have not had the chance to try this in rainy conditions but it seems to be waterproof after holding it under water for about 5 minutes with no leakage.

    I got this jacket for camping, winter sports and walking around town. I'm 5'8' and a small fits very well. The jacket is flexible and moves with you when your active and the fatigue color is really nice. Its nice to take the hood off but the collar is big and a little bulky for casual wearing but when its cold it will be nice.
