This jacket is awesome-o. skiing and working in the snowy/wet northwest, I am a big fan of Gore-Tex. and thought I'd miss it in this jacket, but it is still very waterproof. It fits great, the length is perfect. So many sweet pockets! Very important feature. Fabulous colors(aruba) and the penguin logo is kick ass. One minor con, an outer seam is coming loose already, but Its a minor fix I will do myself! Great coat buy it!
