swiss army knife of jackets
the furio jacket is one excellent combination of materials and design. I was looking for a jacket that would stand up to the heavy rain on the trail yet wouldn't be so heavy and bulky that I wouldn't want to carry it. well the furio hit that mark. the paclite body is excellent and have yet to bleed after many hours and trips in rain. It breathes really well too. the hem zippers from pit to waist are awesome for poncho style draping the jacket over your pack. the pro shell shoulders keep the rain out under the weight of a full pack, which was a problem i found with other jackets. its a durable shell for what it is too i tend to take on a little extra weight in my gear if it means it'll be more durable in the field. it hasn't pulled yet after encountering many bushes and branches that would see the material rip. the higher pockets are nice because they're still accessible over a harness when you're climbing. and the nice little OR touches like articulated arms, helmet compatible adjustable hood round out his jacket. I am 6'3" and 210lbs. the large fits me just like i want it too. enough room for a base and mid layer without any extra bulk. the sleeves also fit my long arms so that made me happy :) all in all my go to shell for any outdoor activity. If you need a do it all and come back for more shell this is it.

Very impressed so far. Haven't taken it on the slopes yet but, it kept me dry as a bone in some extremely hard freezing rain and sleet for over an hour.... The workmanship and quality of materials is excellent!
