Summary

Super lightweight, super warm, and priced right.

Pros

  • Compacts to almost nothing
  • Lightest warmth-to-weight ratio
  • Very warm and water resistant

Cons

  • I have the orange jacket and the feathers can be viewed through the material.

I won't be long winded in this review because what you need to know is this is the perfect hooded jacket for the price. Warm, water resistant, pockets lined with felt like material, and uber lightweight.

I got this on sale for Memorial Day at 15 percent off for $169.99 (199.99). The jacket can use a shell over it for wind and I use a Patagonia Torrentshell for those days.
