Good overall warm weather rain protection for you and your pack. Vents well. Adjustable hood is big enough to use a wide brim Tilley hat. Not great for bushwacking but for on trail use its hard to beat for warm weather rain protection.

Price comparison from GearBuyer: Integral Designs Silcoat Cape priced at: $49.97

The biggest complaint that people seem to have about this cape is that it doesn't extend below the knees.
I personally prefer this as it works better when hiking in rough terrain or when wearing a rain skirt.

It is lighter than most rain shells, better ventilated and since it is a cape, doesn't need a more fragile breathable membrane.

The adjustable bungees make for a good fit around a pack. I have used it to supplement my shelter at times.
