After quite a bit of research I finally decided on this jacket. Backcountry was the only place that had my size(xl). Customer service was great. Delivery was the next day. I would buy here again. As for the jacket, I absolutely LOVE it. It's definitely windproof and waterproof but only in the front, shoulders and half way down the sleeves. The black part of the jacket is a thermal material for warmth, but not waterproof. I have used this jacket in 20 degree weather with a wicking t-shirt and a mid layer long sleeve and was almost a bit overdressed. It is very comfortable and has a little more room than the Pearl Izumi and Solomon jackets which makes it easy to layer up under it. I can't find anything bad about this jacket.
