Summary

Excellent reasonably priced jacket.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Very reasonably priced
  • Packs small

Cons

  • Not terribly durable

Most Gore-tex Pro jackets out there are all pretty similar. This one falls into the category of lightweight jacket for summer use. It has excellent waterproofing as you would expect. The seam sealing is decent. The two alpine style (cross reach) pockets. But this jacket is incredibly well priced.

For a summer alpine jacket this is a cheaper alternative to something like the Marmot Speed Light. However it lacks the rubbish pockets that the Speed Light has. Being thin it does have some durability issues. But they are worth it for the comparable weight and price. 

A terrific product and great for alpine ascent in the summer.
