Excellent jacket. I was deciding between this one, the Marmot Precip and the MH Epic Jacket. Although this one is the priciest of the three, it seems to be the best one. Breathes incredibly well for a non-Gore-Tex jacket, completely waterproof, and has some of the nice features, like big pit zips, waterproof zippers and a fleece chin guard. Having used precip before, the Drizzle Jacket breathes much better. Athletic cut, but not so much that layering can't be done. I would recommend this jacket to anyone over the Precip and Epic.
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Cloudveil Drizzle Jacket is the perfect combination of features and weight for the ounce counters out there. Its durable construction, coupled with waterproofing and breathability, make it well suited for every type of alpine activity.
