Bomb proof jacket, but wasn't what I needed

This jacket is bomb proof. Although I did not field test it, it appears very durable and weatherproof. However, that also means heavy (2.4 lbs per the specs). I'm not sure about its breathability, but it does have nice side vents. The vents are not armpit vents ,but start at the side of the chest and go down to above the area where the powder skirt is. As far as sizing goes I felt that the arms were big (a tad long and also wide around the wrists). I am 5'9", 160lbs and got the medium. As it turns out I needed a lighter weight, more packable jacket for an expedition, but thought I would try this one because of the sale. This would probably be great for daily use at the resort or even backcountry if weight and packability are not considerations and if the weather conditions are bad (cold, windy, snowy)--probably too much for bluebird days.
