Got this shell on sale at REI for under $200 in a clearance event. It is a little different than other shells because there is a second waistband that I think is for a snow barrier. The second waistband is rubberized and snug. Overall the zipper, snaps and pockets are all awesome. Am using this jacket with the men's Nitrous jacket insulation layer. The insulation layer doesn't zip into the shell, but that's ok. There is a headphones and cellular phone pocket and then a exterior chest pocket. The water proofing is ok and will keep you dry, but not in a downpour. The hood and brim are well designed.
