Pricey - a lot of guys had them in Afghanistan. The only downside is that the petty theft fairy seemed most attracted to TAD stuff.
If you're going to use something like that everyday for an extended period of time, the cost justifies itself rather quickly. If not, then something cheaper will work.
Keep in mind that non-tactical soft-shells will also get it done. Marmot, Columbia, and various REI type stuff works - in black, or if you can find tan, brown, and green colors works great, at are price much better. Without some of the tacticool features, they pack up tighter and can more happily fit in a backpack.
