I love this shell. I managed to get the chromium in medium with help from a chat rep (Thank you Josephine!) even though I was told beforehand they were discontinuing the color altogether. I like the lighter colors on the chromium much better than the darker black or blue which seem to be such standard, mundane colors for mens clothing. As a twenty-something Im happy to see Merrell go with a more inspired, expressive color palette with any of their clothing or shoe lines. The elastic cuffs and hem are a nice touch that I didn't expect to find as useful as they are and the pockets are huge! I feel so satisfied and confident when I wear this. Total protection from the wind and rain, plenty of room to carry your essentials and nothing you don't need holding you back from your run.
