Nice jacket for when it gets cold.
- Pit zips are awesome for regulating body temp
- Synthetic fill works when wet
- Fits big through the waist
- Doesn't stuff into its own pocket
I've been using this jacket for about four months now (Colorado winter/spring) and I really like it.
Down is getting more expensive so after shopping down I decided to go synthetic and I'm glad I did. We've had a wet spring in Colorado. I've seen the temp drop 10-15 degrees in an hour so the pit zips have come in very handy.
This jacket works in town and in the backcountry and will keep you comfortable in a wide range of temperatures.
I think my torso length puts me in between sizes so I went with an XL. It fits big through the waist but it's not that much of a concern for me.
The cost of this jacket is why I got it, it's super cheap compared to many other brands on the market that are comparable.
I'm now realizing that it was not good to move near a Golite store. I really like this brand and the low cost of their gear when it's still high quality. I shop there a lot!!
