First and foremost this jacket is totally bomb-proof. It is a great technical jacket, though it is a little heavy (about 2.5 lbs, though it does compare favorably with other big mountain jackets). It has a very good hood, it vents very well through pit zips, four mesh-lined pockets on the chest, and a back vent that zips open or closed. The all-mountain is reinforced on the shoulders, arms and hips with a heavy nylon oxford.
My only grips about the jacket are: 1. the barrels to adjust the waist drawcord are on the hips, making it a nuisance when putting a pack on, and 2: the sleeves aren't cut for folks with very long arms, like myself, but this isn't a big problem unless I use it for rock or ice climbing.
Overall this jacket is a great shell for big, expedition-type climbs, or winter's worst conditions. It is the most durable jacket i have ever seen, period. Nothing comes close, no matter what people say, I've seen them all. So if you're a winter camper or a big-mountain guy this is one jacket that you can trust with your life.
