Mountain Hardwear Terra Shell Jacket

Price Paid: $175
I literally never leave home without it. This jacket is incredible. It packs down to nothing, I use it along with my REI ultralight pants and that is my outerwear for nearly any excursion. It weighs almost nothing. I wish the mp3 pocket was bigger, can barely fit iPhone into it, but my iPod nano fits easily, the exterior pockets are raised for access when you have a harness on, the welded hood is fantastic and I find I use the pit zips all the time.
Water rolls off like elephant ears and even though it has no proper insulation, I am comfortable, even when I just have a simple shirt on underneath and it is -5C out.
I'm about to take it skiing in the San Juan's, we'll see how it does, but I'm very happy with it. Best shell I've ever owned. Not to mention quite fashionable.
Here's what other sites are saying:
When the mountainside proves to be less terra firma and more rain-soaked mud bath, keep dry in Mountain Hardwear's waterproof Terra Shell Jacket. Rain rolls off the Conduit coating, but your sweat still evaporates before it can condense and make you cold - all while you maximize on comfort and fit with one-handed adjustment systems at the hem and hood, and articulated sleeves that allow for climbing, trekking, and other complex alpine maneuvers.
