Sturdy construction while still being really light weight. The zippers are pretty small but work well and I think will be pretty durable. Purchased here after comparing it to a similar items from patagonia and the north face and think that for the price it's better then those. The outside is a thin water / wind / tear resistant shell, the big difference. I tend to wear the jacket with a sweater or sweatshirt underneath a lot of the time. Nice hood that adjusts a few different ways. My only gripe would be the design of the pockets being to high on the chest it's a bit awkward feeling standing around with your hands in them, and the openings are so big that they let air flow around your wrists. I have not yet worn this climbing though so don't know if it's going a different story once you've got a harness on.
Would go for the black personally,
