Nice Jacket

I haven't had a chance to use this yet but I can tell it will be one of my favorites and will go everywhere with me. So light, seems well made, very packable, and great fit. I am 6'3 200lbs with long arms and the XL fits perfect.

Just What I needed

This piece is just what I needed for those circumstances where every other piece is a little too hot or a little too cold. I initially bought the Nebo to wear under my poncho in the rain to just cover my arms, but quickly realized the versatility of it. Now, I use it in so many other ways,
