I need a new hardshell for backpacking (about 25 lb pack) and some bushwacking.  I saw both of these for a good price so bought them both.  I already recieved the Rab and actually like it a lot  (especially the hood).  The Rab seems like a good jacket but I am concerned about the durability.  From the reviews online, it seems that the jacket may not be durable.  also, I read that eVent works great initially but is prone to leaking and delamination in the future.  Does anyone here have the latok alpine?  Can they vouch for the durability of the jacket?

What about the OR furio.  I am waiting for this jacket to come in the mail.  I like the idea of the giant pit zips but am worried about them malfunctioning.  Anyone have any experience with this jacket?  Thanks

i have the rab latok, not the latok alpine.  it is relatively new, a little early to judge durability for the brand.  but, it is a very solid, well made jacket.  regarding eVent, i have had another jacket for a while that has held up great - no seam tape problems, no delamination. 

not familiar with the furio.  i have generally had good experience with other outdoor research products.
