Before we dive in, let me restate the obvious. Saddles are a very individual item, in that one person may love a certain one and the next person hate it.
The RX6 has what I would call a slightly relaxed feel overall in comparison to the RX801. The uppers feel a bit more forgiving.
In the end the Showers Pass Ultralight Wind Jacket is a “good” item and mostly because it is so easy to pack away, deploy, wear, and repack, that I would choose it for any longer adventure where I was expecting cooler, windy conditions.
I know now that wearing a RX6 and an RX8 at the same time, the RX8 one on one foot, the RX6 on the other, I couldn’t tell you which was which without looking.
I was dismayed by an issue with the Ridescape GR lenses that at first was baffling me.
Now how about those ‘magnetic lenses’? Well, they do pop off the frames with a bit of effort, and reattach with a reassuring pop.
