Summary

Light, packable, warm and beautifull jacket, but poor material .... buy it if you dont need a resistant jacket, otherwise look somewhere else.

Pros

  • Ridiculously lightweight
  • Packable
  • Beautiful

Cons

  • Bad quality of material

This jacket is spectacular. Ridiculously lightweight and packable, warm, beautiful colors, I chose the color electric blue. 

But after having it a week of normal use, failure began to be felt, maybe it's for the excessive use of lightweight materials, on the sleeves already started to notice wear and several seams is loosening. I can understand this to happen after prolonged heavy use, but not with just one week of city walking.

I was planing to take it to a MTB trip at the hills, but I'm definitly back with my old Arc'teryx Atom LT.
