I have the 2010 version of this jacket. I chose not to upgrade since I love the color/styling of the 2010 version over the newer model. However, the Powerxross is simply incredible in every aspect. I ride in this 95% of the winter season and never get cold, wet, or uncomfortable. I recently teamed this up with Stealth Bibs and can say I have the perfect combination of fit, style, comfort, and waterproofness for riding the "Steep & Deep". Bring it on old man winter!
