This is the best jacket I've ever owned by far. The freedom of movement is stunning, it is lightweight and retains all the technical features. I really like those reinforcements, and this form of Gore-tex escapes the 'stiff and heavy" catagory as it is light and very flexible. If you have the money buy it! If you don't have the money, buy it anyway!
You can get this jacket cheaper from outlet stores, I got mine for £160. Highly recommended for mountaineering, walking, skiing, and climbing.
