Perhaps most issues occurred on last years batch?
I like mine, enough pockets to ride without a pack and still carry the
No pack allows for the side vents to do there job .
This jacket must breathe as it's the first jacket that I can climb in without over heating, next to my Gore jacket. My Gore ….which I also like due it it's breathability doesn't see much action because it has zero packets, no vents , only a media pocket.
The Chute is my " go to " jacket.
