I wanted a lightweight but warm jacket without a hood and this appeared to fit the bill. It's well made, looks great and feels quality. You get hot very quick walking in this!
I took it skiing to morzine where it is often very wet and it held up very well in the slushy snow and rain much to my friends amazement who after seeing my jacket of choice for the trip, laughed at me claiming I was going to get drenched then freeze to death on the mountain.
I also have the montane atomic waterproof jacket and it's outershell appears to be made from the same material.
