I ordered this jacket last summer (which ia major pain, as there is no distributor in EU). Tested it as my main outdoor jacket since. Things that stand out for me:
- It is light, packs well, performs very well, but I havent tested it in extensive rain for longer than couple of hours. Good ventilation and excellent wind protection.
- The desing allowing protecting the hip belt of the backpack is superb, however the cut parts of the jacket are held together by two tiny spots of velcro. This is not easy to attach and not reliable enough. Straps of velcro would have been much easier (no need for precise connection) and error forgiving solution
- Stoppers on the drawstring of the hood are a major flaw. They just dont work allowing the wind loosening the hood. I replaced it wit aftermarket stoppers, 25 cents for a pair and it works perfect. Guys @ Sierra - did you actually try this in the wind?
- Hood has no back-of-the-head regulation - it will cover your eyes when pulled tight against the wind. Not nice not to see where you go ;-)
Other than that - it is great piece of gear. I am 196cm tall, and ordered XL. Perfect, long cut jacket, well made, packable, light and reliable. Minor desing issues should be easy to fix and implement into the production.

I received my order promptly without delay and with no issues. The Ultralight trench has done an excellent job keeping me dry. Charles on Jul 19th 2015
