Looks great, cuts wind, but provides no warmth (I should have know this, but other "shell" jackets do).
I got the version before this one. The difference is my one had no stuff sack, and it did have one zippered pocket on the left chest area. Besides that, it seems to be the same.
I was lucky to get the jacket on special, because I've always wondered why such a light piece of clothing costs such a high price. Well now I know. The weight, or lack of it, is truly amazing. I used my digital scales and it says 92 grams. It's so light that I just threw it into any bag I used, even as a just in case jacket. It's slightly small for me (there's a reason it was on special) but I don't mind.
It does it's job reasonably well but isn't perfect. It will keep the chill away as you jog. It does well with light to even moderate rain but can't take torrential rain. I know because I specifically went out in this jacket in a spate of torrential rain- the sort that soaks you to the bone after just standing just half a second in it- I was soaked. I was hoping for a 92 gram miracle...
I just received this jacket the other day, and paid $167 with shipping and handling. It's even lighter than advertised the size large weighs in at 3.0 oz and the stuff sack is 0.1 oz for a total weight of 3.1 oz.
There are no pockets whatsoever which I cannot hold against the design, since I knew that before ordering the jacket. I intended to use this as my rain jacket for spring and summer ultralight backpacking pursuits. I plan to use it with the Berghaus Vapourlight Hypertherm Jacket, and should work, but I had hoped that it could accomodate slightly puffier Berghaus jackets such as the Ilam and Ramche Hyper Down, or other similar jackets, but unlike the Vapourlight Hyper Smock 2.0 which reviewers showed to layer well over such jackets, this appears to fit a little more snug. Aside from this, the jacket has proven to be quite windproof. I am yet to use it in the rain, but will leave my rating at 5 stars until the jacket exhibits any shorcomings.
