I was looking for a 3 ply GT shell for snowmobiling and hit pay dirt at the TNF outlet store in Bend, Oregon. After combing through all the overpriced XCR and low tech 2 ply, I found this little gem mixed in with some other jackets. I was looking for a large size but the Middle Triple medium is cut so big it fit me fine, even with base-fleece layers. Marked down to $148 plus a 40% sale discount- $89.99! woo-hoo!

Roomy for its listed size, light, long, and basic with few pockets. The core vents do not work as well as pit zips but the underarm is less bulky. I like mine for all the reasons above.

The jacket is true to its word in terms of what it should be and what it should do. I got the opportunity to test it in a storm, and it does keep you dry inside despite being in a very wet environment. It is also lightweight and easy to dry. I dipped it in a river to wash mud away and stored it in my backpack wet. When we were trekking down near the rendezvous point, I wore it for awhile under gray skies and still, it dried up in less than an hour. It's a great shell, and I recommend it.
