Patagonia Slingshot Jacket
I was lucky enough to have this jacket issued to me for my work. While it's not a bad jacket, I haven't found a use for it for which I wouldn't prefer one of my other jackets.
It's a lightweight softshell, but I much prefer my North Face Cipher Windstopper jacket. The Cipher keeps the wind off better, fits better, keeps me more comfortable while running or just lounging around. I really can't imagine a case where I would buy one of these unless I absolutely needed a very lightweight, hoodless softshell.

This is a close as it gets to Schoeller Dryskin, without being Dryskin. Patagonia has gotten it right. A great fabric that breathes, resists water big time and is wind resistant too. I haven't had it long enough to know for sure, but I bet it is highly abrasion resistant also. Seems to be similar to a Cloudveil Serendipity, but without the velcro on the cuffs (thank goodness!). Nice piece, wonder why they stopped making it? Wonderful soft shell with a great cut.

Jacket is great for wind and moderate rain. Add insulation for colder weather. Wind resistant and water resistant. Let water sit for fifteen minutes on the fabric and it didn't leak through. It is very breathable and the pockets/vents are in the perfect place. The material is very tough, had a few run-ins with some slickrock and it didn't even phase it. Great shell. Good layering piece.
