I bought this top and the matching legs at the same time. I wanted them as backup for wearing under a motorbike suit that had plenty of life left in it, but occasionally leaked. There then followed a long period when I never seemed to wear that suit in the rain, and I used the EDZ two-piece as a more general windproof layer when running, climbing or out with my camera. I have become very fond of it indeed. The two pieces take up no pack-room - indeed they fit in your pocket pretty well. Eventually, I got to wear them for the purpose for which they were intended, and can confirm that their water repellent properties, even after a year of use, are really good.
