I'd give it 4.5 or higher. I've never worn a jacket this nice, and for the sale price vs. list it can't be beat comparing specs vs. the competition. The main, minor drawbacks are as follows:
There isn't a membrane or foreskin of sorts on the wrist sleeves. Minor, minor deal. The main zipper is a little sticky (could be newness) The hood isn't detachable. The clasp on the lower pocket lanyard (on mine anyway) has a gap and stuff easily slides off. The underarm vent zipper cut the $#!+ out of my thumbtip when carelessly loading luggage into my car pre-trip.
Other than that, I was very pleased. It's pretty light and packs much more tightly than my older, cheaper 3-in-1. The magnets are a well-thought out feature. It felt warm in the cold but breathable in the mid 50s. The hood fits over a helmet, although I couldn't zip it all the way up and get it over my fat head. I would ride powder, gaping and dorking all day, take it off, and it would be dry by dinnertime.
I wore it mostly in mid singles-twenties and heavy snow (scored this trip). The wrist velcro cinch + glove cinch kept snow out fine. My philosophy is to buy fancy under gear, overdress, and let the fanciness wick moisture. I was sweating like a corn fed swamp hog while wearing a light base + mid base + light zip fleece and this jacket. It is not completely uninsulated, but still seems like more of a shell than a bubblegoose for sure. I probably could have worn only one base and the thin fleece and this and been perfect the entire time, other than the first post-lunch lift ride.
If you surf, my general cold fairy scale is as follows: 70-69 top, 68-66 2mil spring, 66-63 2mil shortsleeve full, 62-60 2mil full, under 60 = 3/2 and boots, gloves go on under 55, and under 50 in gloves, booties, and hoodless 3/2 I'm dealing but hating life and feeling like I'm going to pass out when I duck dive.
On a sunny day with no wind and no breaks in riding you could probably wear a base layer and this jacket and be fine. Thankfully I wouldn't know because it puked blower for a week, praise Ullr peace be upon him.

This jacket is great. its a shell so no insulation. i never get sweaty because it breathes nicely and keeps the water and snow out. the zipper is heavy duty but does tend to get stuck when you zip, this should stop after the jacket has been used a while. i am 6"1 155lbs and it fits great. there is no hand apparatus at the end of the sleeve to keep the snow out when your gloves come loose. i recommend this jacket, i got the earth color and it looks good, wasn't my first choice though. the interior lining pattern is a bit weird but doesn't matter i guess because its on the inside.
