Great product !

Bought this to keep handy while backpacking, now it gets used all of the time. Great as the top layer to wind proof my old Columbia fleece jacket. Does get a bit warm/clammy as it does not ventilate too well from the back, but oh well. I have loaned it out to my backpacking sons, my wife is wearing it constantly which tells me that I need to buy several more for upcoming birthday gifts. It doesn't have the "flash" of the Patagonia Houdini but compares well in every catagory except weight and cost: Houdini is 5 ounces at $125, my White Sierra weighs in at 11 ounces for [$]... why buy any other brand of jacket?The XL feels a bit larger than I am used to but it does fit well as a top layer. Have worn it on sunny days (unzipped) to keep from burning. A very nice jacket!
