This is back on their website.
I wonder if REI will stock it.

Has anyone tried the new M10? Curious to know how it fares without pit zips.

I picked one up last week and so far I am thrilled with my purchase. Weighs 8.4 oz on my scale (size large) but somehow feels extremely durable at the same time. I had a chance to do a 2 mile fitness hike in the rain last weekend and it performed wonderfully. I finally own a WPB jacket that I actually find to be breathable. The temp outside was a humid 69 F. I was wearing a short sleeve, lightweight Capilene crew underneath and never felt clammy as I used to with my old Precip jacket. I can honestly say that pit zips were not missed.

Wow! Brian, you have me excited. How do you feel about sizing? I'm normally a small in Patagonia but found the M10 a bit baggy in small. The x-small actually worked pretty well but was a bit tight when layering over an ultralight down hoody.

I need to figure out how often I will be layering. I'm wondering if I can use this in cooler weather instead of my 2013 Houdini, which per recent reports is no longer as breathable as before.

"I'm wondering if I can use this in cooler weather instead of my 2013 Houdini,"

I'm not suggesting you can't use the M10 in place of a Houdini for a cold weather windshirt (I do this myself on occasion) but be aware that even though the Houdini doesn't breathe well by wind shirt standards its probably at least one order of magnitude better than a WPB jacket

The fit is perfect for me. I normally wear a size large in Patagonia so that's what I ordered. For reference I am 6' tall and 193 lbs. They advertise a slim fit so I was worried if a large would work for my layering system. For 3 season trips to the rockies I normally wear a light weight long sleeve merino tee, a button up OR long sleeve and a Montbell UL down parka. The M10 fits over everything like a charm. Just enough room for mobility and allowing the Montbell to fully loft. My only gripe is I wish there was an inch or two more length. I guess I'll just tuck in my shirt tail when it's raining.
