User Review: Patagonia Men's Ready Mix Jacket
Price Paid: $199
5 stars for the function it was designed for. That said, I use it for everything: golf, skiing (spring skiing), riding, hiking, running, anywhere I think I might get wet, but i'm not sure, and I'm not really out to get drenched. Packs small, superlight, and if you do get soaked, dries out fast (I was jogging in 60'F weather with ~50% humidity and I'm sweating like a pig and it starts to pour. Most of the jacket was soaked inside and out, but as soon as the rain stopped and I opened up the vents, I dried out in 15 minutes, awesome).
Truly, get this for any activity where you need a full range of motion but don't want any encumberance or binding to inhibit movement, needs to breathe and let you sweat it out, don't want it to take up alot of space, need durability, windstopping power and basic watershedding capabilities. This is a jack of all trades lightweight shell, can't top it for its ability to do everything.
