I do not think one could ask for a better jacket. I do a lot of trail running in the cold rain and such. So it is imperative that I have a waterproof jacket of some sort to adequately shelter me and enjoy my run. Sure, I could have settled for a mediocre jacket, but I am glad I spent alittle extra. Sometimes you pay for what you get and with Arcteryx that is exactly the case. This is one great jacket. It is a sleek and minimalist kind of jacket. It is probably the most practical of all the Goretex jackets out there. The weight is unreal. The zippers are smooth. The pitzips are great. The pockets are perfectly positioned. When I go on a long cold and wet run, I place my hands in the pockets and they shield them just fine. Plus the pockets are are Goretex so no wetness is getting inside the jacket. The jacket is feather-light, but once you get over the idea that it is so light you realize that it is actually a very durable jacket. The jacket certainly does not have excessive bells and whistles, but that is the great part about it. Minimalist does not mean bad in this case, instead, it means great. This jacket has everything that I need and performs great.
