Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $70


The Premier Packer Hoodie is an excellent lightweight and flexible jacket. The Omni-Heat technology inside keeps you just as warm as you need to be and it breathes extremely well. The external Omni-Shield material used doesn't stain, repels water, and is very comfortable. I'd recommend this jacket to those who actively operate in cool to freezing temperatures.


  • Lightweight
  • Flexible
  • Breathable


  • Hood is fixed on the jacket

Fit & Comfort: True to size and very comfortable. Easy to wear while doing everyday tasks and activities.

Adjustability: There are cords that will adjust how tightly fitting you want the jacket to be.

Water Resistance: I have not been in heavy rain yet, but this jacket seems as if it will propel mild rains. I would probably not recommend using it in a heavy rain storm.

Breathability: The jacket vents extremely well, this is on of the best features of this jacket.

Moisture: The jacket wicks sweat, keeping you warm, dry, and comfortable.

Warmth: The jacket appropriately regulates how much heat you need based on your body's production of heat. You are never too hot or cold in any environment.

Layering: This jacket is lightweight, so layering wouldn't be much of a problem at all.

Abrasion: It is fairly sturdy in my normal everyday routines. I wouldn't trust it while camping, although I have no reason to doubt its sturdiness.

Function: The jacket is fully functional.

Ease of Use: Everything works just as expected.

Features: The Omni-Heat and Omni-Shield technology works great!

Construction & Durability: The materials used have been very durable to this point. 

Conditions: I've had the jacket for a month and it's been used in 30-40 degree weather.
