After ripping an e vent and a gelanots shell schwacking in Vermont over three years, I became pretty fed up and decided to go burly. Picked up a gore pro shell with 70 denier facing from O.R. Not the lightest jacket, but very packable and it's not an alpine shell, which is nice because I don't like the way those fit. It's crinkly but so far it's been extremely good at blocking the wind and keeping me dry. Also, just did a day tour exploring in some dense boreal forest. I was concerned for the jacket, but it passed its maiden voyage. Hopefully it will hold up for a while. It's pretty stupid when you can't get more than a season out of a jacket because of weak materials (ymmv). Oh yea, I have two ductape colored shells, slightly used if anybody needs a cheap back up! :thumpsup:
