Fabric: Gore-Tex Paclite & Pro Shell

I give this a pretty high rating because OR tried some really great things with this coat. They tried to keep it light, but durable and highly waterproof. I like the pit-zips that run all the way down to the bottom of the coat. More jackets should have this.
I really like the idea of combining two kinds of fabrics to make the coat breathable and light where it can be, but durable where it needs to be.
But...I am disappointed with Gore-Tex Paclite...in fact it seems that there are many fabrics better than those of Gore-Tex that are on the market now. I think people just need to get past the Gore-Tex worship phase we've been in.
The one thing I wish OR would have done is to take the durable Pro Shell that's currently on the shoulder and make it a longer piece that would continue on down to the elbow (where you really need the durability). I have not worn a hole through my elbows by any means, but it seems like this would be a place to use the Pro Shell if, in fact, you were out to cover the wear-and-tear spots.
Maybe next year's model will have better fabric than Gore-Tex and better protection in the elbows...then OR would take the alpine coat world by storm!

Waterproof. Durable fabric. Has proven worthy on all my recent hikes and backpacking trips in Virginia.
A little bulky for summer use, but I don't hit the trail without this jacket on any other trip. It's proven as a solid rain jacket and winter jacket, for backpacking and flyfishing trips in Wyoming and Minnesota.
I bring this jacket over my ligthweight rain jacket if I can, if I expect to be walking through thick brush, as I know it won't rip or tear.

Construction and look of jacket are fantastic. It is a tad heavier then some jackets in the same category, however the weight comes from a beefier exterior fabric. This is good for someone that uses the jacket for everything like myself.
Jacket has a slimmer cut but is baggy enough for thicker layers. I have not had much time in the wet weather which is why I only gave this 4 stars. Judging by the DWR finish, exterior fabric and construction I see no reason why this jacket would not perform like it's suppose to.
