Any comments with their merino + tencel blend? I'm still looking for layers this season...
I'm also looking for a new rain jacket and I also live in a warm climate. Winters are short and mild in central Texas.
I'm thinking about the Beta SL from Arc'Teryx. Looks like it would fit well and go well with casual or technical gear.
My only concern is that some of the reviews say you will end up getting soaked if end up in a torrential downpour. I don't plan on being in the rain for long periods of time, but I would like a $300 shell to also withstand a rainy day at a music festival and keep me dry all the while.
