I just bought another one as a gift. Mine is a couple years old. Proven to keep the rain off many times. Have not had to restore the DWR. Lightweight. Cram it my pocket all the time for just in case. If I'm wearing a couple of layers and need more the jacket keeps me comfortable. I like the full zipper, helps with regulating temperature. Breaks the wind. I live in the Gorge where the weather is differant every five miles! Dont leave home without it.
