All I can say is "wow".
Well, actually, I would say "it's about time!!!"
Finally, a breathable WATERPROOF, soft shell.
Now I can skip packing a fleece, rain shell, and a sweater.
This jacket ( retails for 220, I paid 140 on ebay new ) is part of a new line of gear with the "conduit" fabric. Soft, waterproof, and breathable.
This Jacket has been on several hikes and is warm and keeps me bone dry.
Add to that, the fact that it's darn near impossible to stain it. I've spilled coffee on it on my morning commute and it all rolled off and landed on my pants. mustard and ketchup.. same thing. .( my poor khakis :))
anway.. I know this isn't a great review, but I want to let you know that this jacket is worth every ounce and every penny you pay for it.
