        Overall

        Would give it a 10/10 if it were $50-$100 cheaper and had slightly shorter arms. Still a great jacket unmatched in quality (except perhaps the equivalent arcteyrx)

        Performance

        This jacket is very breathable and a good option for year-round use. It seems to be durable enough for daily use. It is very light and only has a few pockets. With a down midlayer this would be an ideal skiing/ski touring jacket. I paired it with a softshell and hiked up a mountain in 100% humidity and could see the steam leaving the jacket. Was completely dry

        Design

        Has pleated pockets that are invisible when nothing is in them. Pleated arms allow you to cinch the wrist velcro without funny looking bulges. Lifting arms does not lift the body of the jacket at all (great for climbing or if you have a pack)

        Value

        Usual "patagonia tax". Very good jacket for a slightly inflated price.

        Fit

        Fits slightly large (presumably for thicker layering). I could have gone down a size and been fine. It has especially long arms and a shorter zipper length. More of a climbing fit than skiing I suppose. Nice flat front. Hood fits well over a helmet and is amazingly adjustable.

        Durability

        Can not yet comment on this, although it is goretex proshell so it should be pretty burley
