Tempted - anyone tried this on what it the fit like? I'm faily small, so after a trim fit in the body; assume it has the usual Rab monkey length arms?

Tried one at the weekend. Found it a trim fit with long arms. I'd need to go up one size.

Looking at this to sate my lightweight alpine ambitions: however, has anyone got any thoughts on how well this would stand up to lakes winter deluges?

Given it's e-vent, should be OK but my spidey sense is asking why Rab would make this @£160 and then sell Latok @£250 also if its 100% for heavy rain...

Cheers
