I've been using my Vapor for about a year now. In all conditions, Rain, Snow, Sun, it has performed admirably. The DWR has held up better than most brands I've used, and though not a rain jacket, sheds the moisture very well. It's my favorite BC Ski jacket. VERY windproof for a softshell (especially nice for those many blustery days at Berthoud Pass), without sacrificing breathability for the skin up. The cuffs are large enough to fit easily over Lo-Pro gauntlet gloves, but don't bunch up uncomfortably when closed up without gloves. Arm length is generous and allows for good range of movement and the hood fits my Ski helmet (Smith Holt) comfortably. The only issue might be the pocket zippers, which feel a bit small, but that being said, I've had no issues as of yet. I recommend this as a very good, versatile softshell.
