I love this jacket, so much so that I bought 2! It is so versatile. I run hot but this jacket really works well to regulate my temperature, to the extent that it is almost always on me in the hills now. It is windproof, very breathable, dries really fast and is surprising robust for such a light garment.
I tend to use it most either as a light outer layer in mild weather or as a mid layer in cooler or wetter conditions, but it can be worn very comfortably next to the skin as a base layer. Because it wicks so well It even seems to help keep me cooler in warm conditions.
I got my first one about 18 months ago and I have used them for anything from going to the pub, to hill walking to skiing, to climbing in the Himalayas.
I have a LOT of outdoor gear, but nothing as useful as this.
