This jacket is awesome. As far as a tech shell goes it covers it's bases. It doesn't have anything as advanced as lasered seams or anything but for shredding resorts and the single day backcountry trip this jacket really succeeds. The cut is a little bigger than you might expect. I'm 6'2" with an XL and I have to really reach to get the zipper at the bottom of the coat, but I don't regret this purchase in the least. One last note if you need this for a backcountry/hiking specific shell, it is a little heavy because of the extra fabric.
