Received the jacket today, and although I have to send it back since size small is just a few cm too tight on the waist for the layering system I like to use, thought I will give it a quick review. (Unfortunately for me, I am exactly between size small and medium, but I like a tight and not slouchy fit because of the harness). I have not been able to test its water-resistance!, —however, the thickness of Goretex Pro seems very abrasion resistant, i.e. self-arrests down the hill, or the occasional brushing/bumping against rock etc. It's a real shame to have to send it back as the hood fits very well, even with helmet (Grivel Salamander). The fit is very good as regards the arms length, as these jackets tend to have sometimes too long arms, .. also when lifting arms there is no pull or stretch. Will definitely look for a similar jacket with Mountain Equipment, since this jacket was made in Hungary, therefore EU quality control, as opposed to brands like The North Face, Salewa etc. which produce cheap quantity in China. Thumbs up for Mountain Equipment, it's worth the investment, a very good jacket indeed!
