That's the one...it use to be called the comfort shell! The jacket "skin" Opens up in heat and shuts down in cold. It is super waterproof! I didn't know that when I bought it...but I do now! Yes about the back...I am short and it gives me some issues. After washing it will take a bit to get it all comfy again! Also...use non detergent items to wash...woollite or rain gear hiking wash.
Extreme heat...it is still hot... But better than other jackets.
Lastly the cold...not a sissy in my books...smart is what i call it! The gerbin dealer told me i should nit need layers with this jacket...but if i do...put my layers over the grebin...he was so right. The heat needs to be against your skin. What works best is silk weight...gerbin...then a fleece if you need it...but you might not. Congrats on you investment!
