I recently purchased both corrugate pieces for the 2019 season and I have to say that I'm very pleased. This jacket has handled the public land thickets amazingly and even accompanied me on my first Western hunt. After miles and miles of walking through variable terrain the corrugate set blocked the wind, bucked the brush and stayed comfortable for the entire trip. I would recommend both pieces to anyone looking for a tough comfortable outer layer.
This jacket has served me well in light rain on the water fishing for walleye, though I did get damp, I never felt soaked, unlike the jeans I was wearing on my legs at the time. That said, it's certainly not waterproof, but it does cut the wind well enough to keep you significantly warmer than you would be otherwise. I have also sat in the turkey woods with it and it's kept brambles from stabbing my back after an erroneous lay-back. It also has proven quiet enough in the treestand to not spook whitetails, even when I shift positions for a better look at them. The one thing that I have noticed is that the hood, like that of any windbreaker, cuts down on the sounds that reach your ears significantly over, say, a merino hood. Keep that in mind while listening for critters approaching your position, but buy all means purchase this jacket and go outside.
Definitely one of the best minimalist soft shell jackets on the market. A serious multifaceted jacket that can swing in such a huge spectrum of applications. From a serious minimalist shell just to bust the brush and winds. To a over shell that can be tossed over a few other layers or light puffy to create an entirely warmer piece with solid thermal retention. With its wind cutting and light precipitation shedding characteristics. It’s a solid piece that stays with me from early season all the way into later mid season. As a predominant archery hunter, the articulation and lack of noise is spot on. Definitely recommend specially for those archers.
Bought this for an added lightweight layer for early season. It hasn't disappointed yet. Goes great with the wick line on those warmer days. I have worn it down to the high 30s with a kiln and cirrus puffy underneath. Another versatile piece that will give you a light DWR piece for early season and an outer shell for chilly mornings.
