Since the last update, I have used the Salewa Pedroc backpacking and camping in Virginia, while volunteering at winter ultra races, and for every day hiking and general wear in New Orleans. Overall, I have over 180 miles on the jacket and it has exceed expectations. It is comfortable, durable and useful in a wide array of situations. Click HERE to read my full update.
