This jacket is extremely packable and light. It's kept me dry in downpours in Italy this past month, without making me overly damp from sweat. I also have the Westcomb Apoc which breathes noticably better with the Polartech Neoshell, but when I'm pressed for space and trying to keep the weight as minimal as possible (which I often am), this is my go to rain jacket. For those who know the Apoc, it packs about 30% bigger and heavier, but the breathability of that jacket is phenomonal. All in all, the Specter is a really light, highly durable and packable jacket, while keeping with the style that I always look for in a high quality rain jacket. Definitely recommend this gear.
