Attacks to your torso or vitals from the front instead pass through the portal; energy and projectiles are lost, limbs and weapons may be pulled back through. [225]
As a note, this is one of the cases where multiplicative modifiers really make a difference, dropping the cost to around [60].

Which seems rather more fair to me- this feels like it ought to be priced in the same ballpark as Insubstantiality- both give considerable defense against most attack forms (this one considerably more limited than Insubstantiality, but on the other hand it lacks the "can't effect normal matter at the same time" limitation), and this trades Insubstantiality's ability to bypass barriers and eschew gravity for the ability to *BAMF* away dangers.
