User Review: Cloudveil Men's Serendipity Jacket
Fabric: Scholer Dryskin
Price Paid: $180 (sale)
I wear this thing everyday. On the hottest summer days, I take it to the beach with me instead of a sweatshirt. On the coldest winter days, I wear it snowboarding or climbing. I even look pretty cool with it on at the bars.
The closest thing to a downside is that really heavy rain or wet snow will eventually come through. When I expect these conditions (or don't know what to expect), I take along my cheap Helly Hansen rain coat and throw it on over the Serendipity. The cheap rain protection doesn't breath, but the Serendipity's water resistance does ok with what I sweat into the space between the layers.
All in all, this is the best option for versatility. It's also nice to support a small company instead of a giant that puts bells and whistles on gore-tex to appeal to the same group that buys $45,000 SUVs to drive around the 'burbs.
