I was initially hesitant to spend over a hundred bucks on a lightweight and non insulated jacket but I have been blown away but how versatile it is and how much use I have managed to get out of it. Its very durable and fits/looks awesome!
Tons of features, it really is a whole lot of bang for your buck!
Very impressed with the performance. I bought this as a camping/around town jacket and ended up wearing it everyday for work in the spring while it was always raining. It always manages to keep me dry and im never damp from myself overheating. Its a great shell for a great price. I wear this jacket all the time, any season!

Lightweight and a real nice, rich colour. I have used this jacket for over 100 days of everything from shitty pouring rain to hot days and its always perfect and it still looks like new! All the velcro sections are still good, no stitches have let go, and i never get wet...so i guess the design is pretty damn good!
The material on the inside of the jacket is really solid too. Its not sticky, so you can wear the jacket in the summer with a tee shirt and not"stick" to the inside of your jacket.
Pit zips work really good too. They can be opened up without the "parachute" effect which is nice when its warmer!
Compared to better shells, this offers a lot for a really reasonable price. I was a little hesitent at first to spend $100+ on a "spring jacket" but with hindsight, I am totally impressed and content with what I got for what I paid.
Fits true to size. I am usually a medium and this fit exactly like it should as a medium. The cut is nice too, streamlined so it is rarely is your way.
Still looks like new after 3 seasons of heavy use. I have rewaterproofed it once after washing it a few times and it still doesnt leak. I've even go ripping through heavy bush with it and still no tears!
