OutDry™ Extreme is the first ever waterproof and breathable fabric technology constructed with a waterproof layer on the outside and soft, wicking fabric inside. Traditional raingear uses interior waterproof membranes, which don't allow for air flow, and water-repellent coating that degrades over time. With OutDry™ Extreme, the rugged exterior is an incredibly water-tight membrane with millions of microscopic perforations that let water vapor escape through a wicking membrane directly fused to the shell. The Titanium Outdry Ex Gold Tech shell is like breathable body armor with advanced evaporation and a fully seam-sealed construction featuring an attached, adjustable, storm hood. It also features underarm venting, a slightly dropped tail, adjustable cuffs and hem and high-tech Light Rail™ zippers on the hand pockets.

Very GoodI have just returned home from a 110km section hike of the Appalachian Trail. It rained, it hailed, it was below freezing every morning.
I am someone who always treats and cleans my jackets to keep up the DWR as its critical to it functioning. No matter how good the jacket is wets out after 30 mins of hard rain. This jacket doesn't wet out, it's tough, and I don't have to baby it. It breaths really well and the pit zips and pocket vents are great. I really love how the pocket vents go all the way up the inside. It makes a big difference.
I wore the this jacket all day when it rained on off and we were up in the clouds. I also used it on cold mornings as a wind breaker/warm layer. It breathes well enough that you can hike hard in it around 0C with the vents open.
The jacket I had is a medium and it fits true to size. The colour looks like it does on the website and the weight is 334g.
One concern I had when I first got the jacket was that it seemed noisy. But when wearing it I didn't notice it at all.
One nice feature is the polyester lining bonded jacket on the inside. You can wear t shirt and doesn't feel like its sticking to you.
Compared other types of waterproof membranes this one is the best I have used. Don't think this jacket will keep you from sweating (no jacket can). But its keep the rain and wind out and keeps you from getting soaked from the inside.
Overall an awesome jacket!
