User Review: GoLite Roan Plateau 800 Fill Down Jacket
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $99.99
Jacket is warm and has nice features not found in all jackets.
- Elastic wrist cuffs
- Fabric around neck
- Long for my torso
- Stuff sack instead of pack into pocket
I'm 5'7", 170lbs and the medium fits good. Enough movement through the shoulders and room for two layers underneath. The neck can be zipped all the way up and still be comfortable. The soft fabric around the inside of collar feels nice and prevents chaffing.
I like the extended sleeve length on the outside and the wide jacket cuffs. The length is a little long compared to most jackets but with the elastic cinch cord around the waist it is not a problem. Would be perfect for someone more average height.
Couple ounces heavier than several down jackets used for layering but this is more of a final layer jacket. Comes with a stuff sack.
I bought it on sale for $99.99 and at that price I don't think it can be beat.
