Comments about Patagonia Super Alpine Jacket:
I have found a new go to jacket. I thought the Arc'teryx Beta AR was perfect but this one is even better. This is the perfect 3 season storm shell. It fits over an insulating layer. The pockets are well placed and the pit zips are so easy to use with one hand. The inside pocket works well for holding keys or other small items.
The only other con is that some people might not like the bright colors.
I am 5'11" and 180 lbs and a large provides room for a softshell underneath in the winter without being too large without.
