I used this jacket on a winter summit attempt on Maine's Mt. Katahdin. It served very well as an outer layer in low-wind conditions, and excelled as a mid-layer when the wind picked up. The trip wasn't wet, but I have another Primaloft filled jacket, and I know that it does very well when damp. One thing I really love about this jacket is that, while it has an athletic fit, the cut allows great freedom of movement without causing it to ride up. It's a bit on the shiny side, but even so, mine goes with me everywhere.
