I bought this garment some years ago, it was so good I returned to buy another one (The 2014 Version), as the fit is perfect, and the Gore-Tex keeps me dry, yet lets my sweat escape. The inner satin lining is extremely soft, which makes it very comfortable to wear with just a Tee Shirt underneath, and makes it easy to put on and remove the garment too. Even the price in 2014 is the same as in 2005! The design has been updated a bit, and the inner pocket is sited further up the chest, making it easier to get at my wallet without having to unzip and open the jacket too far down.
(I am glad that The North Face decided to re-instate the comfortable soft satin lining for 2014, just like my 2005 original one, instead of the rather cheap looking mesh used over the last couple of years).
