"Not compressable and I hated the feel of the fabric"
I bought this jacket after going on a 5 day backpack where it rained everyday and snowed the last. One friend had this jacket and she was the only one who stayed dry. That in itself speaks volumes for the waterproofness of this jacket. I have an old Patagonia that's great but too heavy so I never bring it on backpack trips.The jacket arrived in late September and I thought I could use it in the shoulder season as a windbreak, but it wasn't warm enough for Wyoming, nor can you put your hands in the high pockets which are designed solely for wearing a backpack. Summer arrived and I thought now I could use it backpacking, but it was too bulky in my pack, taking up a lot of room as it doesn't compress at all.But the clincher for me was that I just couldn't stand the fabric, which is more like wearing plastic than fabric. It's stiff and uncomfortable. Bottom line, I'm returning it and getting a Patagonia which is even lighter.
My significant other bought me this for Christmas to replace my old one - I'll seriously love him forever for getting it for me. This jacket keeps me dry in torrential rain and breathes really well. It works great as a winter shell hiking in the white mountains in NH. One thing to be aware of is that Arc designed it so that the same sized Atom and other such layers fit perfect under - so it ran a bit big on me (which is fine because it means it's more "airy" when its warm out and there's plenty of room for good layers when it's cold). Does it breathe as well as a softshell? no. But the trade off there is that it is way more waterproof and about as windproof as you can get. If you're looking for a good jacket to serve you in all different conditions this does the trick.
