5.3oz waterproof jacket (Salomon Minim Ultimate Pullover) - $68 (minus $10 for first time customers) on 12/16/2011 08:12:31 MST Print View

I was looking at the VFF sale on LeftLane Sports and noticed they also have up a bunch of jackets. One of which, I don't know anything about, but it looks tempting -- the Salomon Minim Ultimate Pullover is listed as a 5.3oz jacket, with breathability and waterproofing at 10,000K mm... not eVent, but pretty amazing if it really comes in close to 5oz. Anyone have any first hand experience with this jacket?

For those who don't know, Left Lane Sports is one of the many short-term deal sites, similar to TheClymb and many others. I have no affiliation with the site, but if you sign up through my link, you get an instant $10 shopping credit, and they also give me $10 credit.

I'm just curious if this is worth buying.

A few other jackets too, including some down layers, but this looked like the most interesting product that I hadn't seen before.

I love mine if you're still looking into buying one. Mine weights in at 6.75 oz and is a size Medium. (For reference, I'm 5'10" and 160lbs)... I wish they had black as it's not the same red as my Mountain Hardware synthetic puffy ;)

It's heavier, but you can get the Patagonia Torrentshell for about the same price right now.
